Woodbridge's eighth rain garden will be at the Main Library!
Mayor John E. McCormac and the Woodbridge Township Green Team—comprised of employees from the Engineering Department, Department of Public Works, and Planning & Development— in conjunction with the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program, announced the start of construction on the Woodbridge Main Library Rain Garden. Rutgers also celebrated a milestone achievement for the planting of their 50th rain garden.

The Woodbridge Main Library Rain Garden— the eighth rain garden in Woodbridge Township – will serve as an innovative engineering solution to help capture and treat storm-water run-off. The collaborative partnership between Woodbridge Township’s Green Team and Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program effectively allow for environmentally innovative and highly functional projects such as these rain garden plantings.

At the beginning of the year, the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program set a goal of working with various community partners across the State to build 50 rain gardens to commemorate the historic 50th anniversary of Earth Day. With the addition of The Woodbridge Main Library’s green infrastructure, this will account for the 50th rain garden completed by the Rutgers team.
