History:

The Lion's Lake Park rain garden was installed to beautify the site and to intercept, treat, and infiltrate stormwater runoff from a portion of the parking lot. This rain garden was installed as a demonstration for visitors and to solve the standing water that accumulated in the parking lot after rain events.

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 these rain garden is essential.

Type of Runoff Managed:

This rain garden manages stormwater runoff from a portion of the parking lot.

Installation:

The Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program staff, Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Camden County, Camden County Soil Conservation District, and approximately ten New Jersey Watershed Stewards were present for the installation of the rain garden in August 2010, which was approved by Voorhees Township. Staff from 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 gardens were purchased from Pinelands Nursery & Supply. These rain gardens were funded by a 319(h) grant from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
