Engineering

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:


“Due to the ongoing COVID-19 virus, access to Town Hall is very limited. However, in order to minimize the disruption of the local construction industry as much as possible, our offices will continue to provide services such as the review of applications and inspections to the greatest extent possible.

 

That said, one significant change will be how applications are received. Whereas most applications are typically dropped off to the front counter, it is recommended that applications be mailed to our office along with a check for payment. This will minimize unnecessary delays in accessing staff, and will reduce unnecessary contact.

 

Some limited information can be emailed to the main engineering@tomsrivertownship.com  and zoning@tomsrivertownship.com  email accounts, however any official survey or engineering documents that are signed and sealed will need to be mailed along with payments.

 

Thank you for your patience.”

The Division of Engineering provides various services such as coordination of state and federal construction projects and grants, plan review, and design and management of township’s capital construction projects. Capital projects consist of:

  • Beach protection
  • Bulkhead replacement
  • Flood damage prevention
  • Park and recreation projects
  • Public building projects
  • Road paving and drainage improvements
  • Stormwater management and water quality upgrades

Program Involvement

The Division of Engineering also provides services to residents by assisting with flood zone determinations, plot plan reviews, and responding to general engineering and environmental questions typically related to wetlands, stormwater management and other general development questions. The division coordinates with the state and federal government on programs such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency Community Rating System, which allows our residents to enjoy discounts on their flood insurance, as well as state mandates such as our Tier A Municipal Stormwater Permit.

This program’s purpose is to ensure that we do all that we can to improve the cleanliness of our streams, rivers and the bay by inspecting, cleaning and upgrading our township drainage system. This program requires continuous coordination and maintenance of items, such as catch basin and pipe cleaning, street sweeping, detention basin maintenance and outfall erosion protection.
