History:

The Wayne R. Bryant Community Center rain garden was installed to beautify the site and to intercept, treat, and infiltrate stormwater runoff from a portion of the roof.

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 a portion of the roof via the redirected downspout.

Installation:

The rain garden was installed in June 2011 by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program staff and undergraduate student interns, Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Camden County, Camden County Soil Conservation District, and the Camden County Master Gardeners. Staff from the Lawnside Department of Public Works assisted with the labor of the rain garden by excavating, hauling away a portion of the native soil and adding mulch. Delaware River stone was used to line the overflow trench. The native plants that were installed in this rain garden were purchased from Popes' Gardens.

Approval to install the rain garden was granted by the Lawnside Township Engineer and the mayor of Lawnside. This rain garden was funded by a 319(h) grant from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
