position of Board President twice. He held the position of President of the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying in 2018-2019.
 
The second course, held from 10:15 – 11:15 am, is titled “Green Infrastructure (GI): Types, Benefits and Implementation Strategies
The course accreditation is 1.0 PDH credit NJ. 
Presentation to the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers
As more and more communities directly experience the negative impacts of climate change and frequent storms; engineers and municipalities are under increasing pressure to embrace greener and sustainable infrastructure for stormwater management. Green infrastructure refers to a set of integrated strategies to meet stormwater management goals in cost-effective ways as well as achieving multiple benefits by managing runoff with vegetation, soils, and/or reuse.

Very recently NJDEP has adopted Amendments its Stormwater management Rules that requires the use of Green Infrastructure with full effect starting March 2, 2021 to meet the three performance criteria for stormwater quantity, water quality and groundwater recharge. During the current pandemic, it is crucial that engineers; municipalities and utilities, plan and budget their GI projects to stay on track. While there are different scales of green infrastructure, such as large swaths of land set aside for preservation, this webinar focuses on a brief overview of green stormwater infrastructure practices within the urban context. The webinar includes potential environmental benefits, types and functions, implementation strategies, overcoming common installation barriers, and understanding the planning processes required to develop a comprehensive design and avoiding common mistakes during construction of green infrastructure.

 
The speaker for this course is Tejal A. Patel, PE, CME, LEED AP Tejal Patel – PE, CME, LEED-AP – is Group Manager at T&M Associates, a leading national consulting, environmental, engineering, technical services, and construction management company. She has over eighteen years of extensive public and private experience in management and design of transportation planning and infrastructure, traffic engineering, single- and multi-family development, and private site development.
 
The third course, held from 11:30 – 12:30 pm, is titled “Permeable Pavers – A Green Alternative
The course accreditation is 1.0 PDH credit NJ. 
Presentation to the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers
This seminar will analyze the goals and criteria for using a permeable pavement system. We will examine design different solutions for challenging site constraints and compare permeable concrete pavers to other traditional storm systems. You will learn how to utilize ASTM
andard C936 for evaluating permeable pavers and learn efficient installation procedures for permeable pavers. This seminar will examine LEED criteria for achieving potential credits for using concrete pavers, such as stormwater quality and quantity controls, solar reflectivity and
cycled materials.

 
The speaker for this course is  Eugene Fernandez, Commercial Territory Manager, Unilock New York, Inc. Eugene Fernandez of Unilock will be the presenter. After attending Rutgers University with a background in landscape architecture, Eugene spent years in California working on commercial, campus, and residential design projects. Currently, he is the commercial manager for New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia.
