Why: A rain garden is functional landscaping designed to capture stormwater and reduce flooding. They are also designed to improve water quality by acting as a filter for pollutants. Rain gardens are beautiful, low maintenance, and inexpensive gardens you can install at your home. Phase I of the Foxchase Pond Restoration Project includes a rain garden and installation of a naturalized meadow. These green infrastructure demonstrations are designed to manage stormwater and improve water quality. This project is a continuation of the ongoing 319(h) Clean Water Act Grant from the NJ Department of Environmental Protection from 2014 that the Rutgers Cooperative Extension has been working on along with Hillsborough Township.
