About Flood Defense New Jersey

Flood Defense New Jersey is a coalition of state and local nonprofit organizations working to protect our communities from damaging floods and harmful stormwater pollution. We are working across the state to help local communities set up stormwater programs to control flooding and reduce pollution. By building proven on-the-ground projects that protect against flooding, capture polluted runoff and repair failing infrastructure, we can help New Jersey communities become cleaner, greener, and safer.
