History:

The John Connolly Memorial Park rain garden was installed to beautify the site and to intercept, treat, and infiltrate stormwater runoff from the walking path. 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 is essential.

Type of Runoff Managed:

This rain garden manages stormwater runoff from the walking path.

Installation:

The Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program led this demonstration rain garden planting as part of the Voorhees Township Community Day on October 9, 2010. This rain garden planting was attended by approximately 15 interested stakeholders and was coordinated by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program and the Voorhees Township Environmental Commission. This planting was made possible by support from the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Camden County and the Camden County Soil Conservation District. Staff from the Voorhees Township Public Works Department and DiMeglio Construction assisted with the labor of installing the rain garden. A backhoe was used to remove a portion of 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.
