The St. Benedict's Preparatory School rain garden was installed with funding from The New York-New Jersey Harbor Estuary Program, New Jersey Marine Sciences Consortium/New Jersey Sea Grant Extension Program, and Future City, Inc. With this funding, three rain gardens were installed cooperatively by Future City, Inc. and the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program throughout Essex and Union Counties. These rain gardens include Benedictine Academy, St. Benedict's Preparatory School, and Third-Westminster Presbyterian Church.

Type of Runoff Managed:

This rain garden manages stormwater runoff from the St. Benedict's Preparatory School building.


Students and Future City, Inc. staff were present for the installation of the rain garden in May 2008. Community members and local businesses provided equipment and materials, and donated their time and expertise. Property managers were involved in site planning, development and construction. The installation of this rain garden was featured in The Tidal Exchange Newsletter of the New York - New Jersey Harbor Estuary Program and a YouTube (TM) video.
