partnershipLouis Berger and New Jersey’s department of environmental protection have teamed up with industry partners to develop a resiliency plan to aid communities across 15 municipalities in Monmouth County as part of a regional coastal resilience grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

NJDEP, Louis Berger, the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve, the Rutgers Climate Institute and local municipalities will work together to commence the New Jersey Fostering Regional Adaptation through Municipal Economic Scenarios project in efforts to address the impact of coastal hazards and storm surge in the region, Louis Berger said Monday.

The company helped develop the grant proposal for the NOAA program and will lead implementation of the resiliency project.

The team will utilize a scenario-based approach and a public stakeholder process to collaborate with the local communities, Louis Berger said.

Niek Veraart, Louis Berger vice president of environmental planning, said the company will look to develop strategies for long-term resilience and preparedness for future climate challenges.

Louis Berger said the project covers the Eatontown, Fair Haven, Highlands, Little Silver, Long Branch, Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Ocean Township, Oceanport, Red Bank, Rumson, Sea Bright, Shrewsbury Borough, Tinton Falls and West Long Branch municipalities.
