A 1,650-square-foot rain garden was installed in 2015 at the Pilesgrove municipal building. The rain garden captures and infiltrates stormwater runoff from the municipal building’s parking lot to prevent nonpoint source pollution. The project was installed in partnership with the Pilesgrove Township, Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions, and the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program.

On 12/3/18, NJDEP announced it is proposing significant changes to the state’s stormwater management rules (NJAC 7:8), which will replace the current requirement that major developments incorporate non-structural stormwater management strategies to the “maximum extent practicable” to meet stormwater management standards for water quality, recharge and volume control, with a requirement that green infrastructure must be utilized to meet these standards.
