New Jersey Pinelands Long-term Environmental and Economic Monitoring Program under Cooperative Agreement P13AC00554 between the New Jersey Pinelands Commission and the NPS.: This is NOT a request for applications; this is an announcement that an award has already been designated for the NJ Pinelands Commission for their work on the Long-term Environmental and Economic Monitoring Program under Cooperative Agreement P13AC00554. Under this agreement, The Commission will: 1. Continue to analyze the second round of water-quality and plant and animal data, initiate a comparison of the results of the two rounds of surveys, and begin to explore ranking the stream and impoundment sites from the second round using the multiple- indicator approach developed from the Mullica River data and applied to the Rancocas Creek and Barnegat Bay data. If funding and staff resources allow, a report that describes the relationship between land use and the various water-quality and plant and animal indicators will be initiated in 2014. 2. Continue to monitor pH and specific conductance on a bimonthly basis at the network of 47 Pinelands-wide sites, initiate an analysis of the pH and specific conductance data from 2005 - 2013 to determine whether any trends in these parameters occurred during that period, examine the relationship between nitrogen and phosphorus and land use, and include the results of the trend and nutrient analyses in the report in #1. 3. Continue to monitor water levels monthly at the 35 forest plots and 30 of the 37 ponds, visit the seven ponds with continuous recorders quarterly to download the water- level data and maintain the recorders, initiate an analysis to summarize the hydrologic regimes associated with the forest-plots and ponds and to examine the relationship of water-level fluctuations among all of the -level monitoring sites, and include the results of this analysis in the report in #1. 4. Continue to monitor calling anurans monthly from March - June at these 20 ponds, initiate an analysis of the 1996 - 2013 vocalization data to assess trends in species occurrence and numbers calling during the period, and include the results of this analysis in the report in #1. 5. Initiate an analysis of the anuran-survey and wetland-forest vegetation data collected as part of the Wetland-buffer Study. 6. Select and install staff gages in the remaining natural ponds for the Pond- vulnerability Study and initiate the water-level and water-quality monitoring and plant and animal surveys for a portion of the 100-pond sample. 7. Select and install staff gages in the remaining excavated ponds and stormwater basins for the Created-wetland Study and initiate water-level and water-quality monitoring and plant and animal surveys for a portion of both types of wetlands. 8. Continue to provide coordination and outreach and host the Pinelands Research Series. 9. Complete and issue the 2013 Pinelands Long-Term Economic Monitoring Program Annual Report and present findings to Pinelands Commission and Pinelands Municipal Council. In mid-2014, collect 2013 economic and census data; analyze selected data; develop maps and charts; produce the 2014 Pinelands Long-Term Economic Monitoring Report and report findings in late 2014. Continue to determine need/possibility for supplemental data to aid in analysis of current Pinelands economic conditions; collect necessary data; and report findings in future annual economic monitoring reports. Identify gaps in data or needs for additional special studies to expand upon current economic monitoring program; determine what resources are required; and begin procurement of resources for analysis. 10. Continue to review current status of the Pinelands Development Credit program; assess the impact of possible changes, and conduct ad hoc analyses for planned rule-making, which will include supply and demand status updates. 11. Provide content and support for an update of the economic impacts of the Commission’s regulations from 2003 through 2012 for the 4th Five-Year Comprehensive Management Plan progress report to be completed in 2014. Special Studies (funding and time permitting) 12. Reexamine the impacts of municipalities that are “split” by the Pinelands boundary on the long-term economic monitoring program; investigate whether GIS and/or additional data can offer more accurate analysis than the current method (10% rule); and locate and secure data resources. Investigate if the use of ESRI estimates should be continued for future reports. 13. Revisit the Municipal Fiscal Health Special Study to determine needs for an update; reexamine methods for determining fiscal stress; and complete study/update, if a need is determined. 14. Initiate a review of the nearly twenty-year-old New Jersey Pinelands Long-term Environmental and Economic Monitoring Program that was established to evaluate the long-term ecological and economic consequences of the Comprehensive Management Plan.
