"Characterizing and Mitigating Flood Risk for New York City"
Presented by Philip Orton, Ph.D., Stevens Institute of Technology
New York City and its neighboring New Jersey Harbor shorelines have many low-lying areas highly susceptible to flooding, particularly as sea levels continue to rise in the coming decades. Dr. Orton will present recent results of recent work with the New York City Panel on Climate Change where they utilized hydrodynamic modeling to map tidal-monthly and extreme storm-driven flooding. These same models are powerful tools that can be modified for experiments to test flood risk reduction measures. Dr Orton will also present and discuss results of evaluations of nature-based flood adaptation strategies and gated storm surge barrier systems similar to those being evaluated in the US Army Corps of Engineers' ongoing Harbor and Tributaries study.
Dr. Philip Orton is a research assistant professor at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ, holding a PhD in physical oceanography from Columbia University. He has published over 35 peer-reviewed articles on coastal physical oceanography, storm surges, flood risk assessment, air-sea interaction, sediment transport, and coastal meteorology. He is a member of the NYC Panel on Climate Change and contributed to NYC’s adaptation planning after Hurricane Sandy, working with NYC on the Special Initiative on Rebuilding and Resilience, and as a member of the winning Living Breakwaters team for Rebuild By Design.

ASCE Central Jersey Branch invites you to a tour of the new STEM Building at TCNJ, followed by dinner and a technical presentation on the design elements of this project.
Get a tour of the building and insight into the site's geotechnical information and impact on the building foundation design with the rammed aggregate piers, and the storm water management measures with the underground detention system. On the building tour, TCNJ tour guides will point out the structural design with partially visible lateral bracing elements.

Join us for a Technical Dinner Presentation on "Ethics" for Engineers
When: February 20, 2018
Where: Forsgate Country Club; Monroe Township - NJ
Presented by Ted Green, PE
Engineering Project Manager
New Jersey Local Technical Assistance Program (NJLTAP)
ASCE Regional Governor
Obeying the law is what we have to do. Behaving ethically is what we ought to do, but not necessarily have to. This leads to a dilemma all engineers must deal with on a daily basis. Ethical decision making is one of the chief responsibilities of leaders in any profession. This presentation, based in part on a well-known television game show will engage you in an interactive discussion on engineering ethics by utilizing the ethics canons of various engineering professional societies as they relate to situations civil engineers often experience. In addition, case studies will be utilized to provide group discussions on how you may manage the situation at hand.
Presented by: Ted Green, P.E., M.ASCE, ASCE Region 1 Governor
Join us for a Technical Dinner Presentation on "G2 Constructed Wetland Basin in Plainsboro, NJ"
When: January 16, 2018
Where: Forsgate Country Club; Monroe Township, NJ
ASCE Central Jersey Branch invites you to dinner and a technical presentation on a G2 Constructed Wetland Basin in Plainsboro, NJ.
This presentation focuses overall project scope and lessons learned during the upgrade of a portion of a regional stormwater management system to current stormwater management criteria with the implementation of a constructed stormwater wetland basin. Flood control and water quality have been greatly enhanced as a result of its construction.
