History:

The Parkside Neighborhood rain garden was installed to beautify the site and to intercept, treat, and infiltrate stormwater runoff from Park Boulevard. Stormwater runoff will enter the rain garden situated in the median through curb cuts.

This rain garden helps mitigate nuisance flooding in the area and reduces nonpoint source pollution and stormwater runoff that would otherwise discharge into the City of Camden’s combined sewer system.

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, situated in the median, manage stormwater runoff from Park Boulevard via curb cuts.

Installation:

The Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program staff, Parkside Business and Community in Partnership (PBCIP), Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Camden County, Camden County Soil Conservation District, New Jersey Tree Foundation (NJTF), and volunteers from Campbell's Soup Company participated in the installation of the rain garden at the median of Park Boulevard and Magnolia Avenue in April 2011, which was approved by the City of Camden. With assistance from Fleet Construction & Remodeling Co., Inc. a backhoe and operator were provided. The existing soil was excavated and used to create shallow berms. The remaining soil was hauled away and disposed off-site. Approximately 11 cubic yards of a 50% sand and 50% compost soil blend was tilled into the remaining soil. These amendments were added to improve both the rain garden’s infiltration rate and soil nutrient capacity. The native plants that were installed in the rain garden were purchased from Popes' Garden. This rain garden was funded by a 319(h) grant from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
