History:

The Rita M. Faiola Memorial Park rain garden was installed to beautify the site and to intercept, treat, and infiltrate stormwater runoff from the street before it enters the adjacent waterway. This rain garden is part of the Cooper River Watershed. The Cooper River watershed is characterized by extensive residential and commercial development and as a result its streams are severely impacted by increased stormwater runoff. To address the water quality issues associated with increased stormwater runoff, demonstration projects like this rain garden are essential.

Type of Runoff Managed:

This rain garden manages stormwater runoff from the street before it enters the adjacent waterway.

Installation:

The Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program staff and summer undergraduate student interns, the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Camden County, Camden County Soil Conservation District, installed this rain garden in August 2010, after approval from Cherry Hill Township. A rototiller was used to loosen the soil. Next one cubic yard of compost was added, which was donated by the Cherry Hill Department of Public Works. The rototiller was run through the rain garden area again, this time to mix together the compost with the native soil. The native plants that were installed in the rain garden were purchased from Pinelands Nursery & Supply. This rain garden was funded by a 319(h) grant from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
