History:

The Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Monmouth County rain garden was installed as part of the Stormwater Management in Your Backyard program that trained the Master Gardeners of Monmouth County.

Type of Runoff Managed:

This rain garden manages stormwater from a portion of the parking lot adjacent to the Ag Building. With an average rainfall of 44 inches a year, this rain garden intercepts, treats, and infiltrates approximately 875,000 gallons of stormwater a year.

Installation:

Approximately twenty Master Gardeners of Monmouth County were present for the installation of the rain garden in July 2007. Sand, leaf mulch, and pine bark were added to the rain garden. Rip rap was also added to dissipate the energy of stormwater before it enters the rain garden. Donations of time and supplies were provided by the Master Gardeners of Monmouth County, Coastal Nursery, Landex Nursery, Freehold Soil Conservation District, Guardian Tree & Turf, Inc., Pinelands Nursery, Manasquan River Watershed Association, Monmouth County Highway Department, Monmouth County Shade Tree Commission, Ocean Township Municipal Recycling Department, and the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program.

Maintenance:

The rain garden is maintained by the Master Gardeners of Monmouth County.
