The Environmental Protection Department approved 10 projects for Rutgers University, Stevens Institute of Technology, Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

NJIT will spend $145,000 to inventory natural resources in flood-prone areas of Barnegat Bay and in Hudson and Bergen counties.

Rutgers will receive $119,000 to examine flood vulnerability along Cumberland County. Another project calls for looking at how to rebuild infrastructure in the short- and long-term to withstand changing sea levels.

DEP spokesman Larry Ragonese tells The Press of Atlantic City using the schools should help as the state moves forward.
