Project Description

Woodbridge Township leveraged local environmental resources to build a public green stormwater infrastructure demonstration network. The goal of the program was threefold: to train Department of Public Works staff in the design and construction of green stormwater best management practices (BMP), to link environmental literacy and public libraries, and to lay a framework of connectivity between community spaces and green spaces, linking schools, libraries, parks, stream corridors, and floodplain restoration areas. Thousands of square feet of green stormwater infrastructure BMPs were built in Woodbridge between 2017-18 at the Inman, Fords, and Iselin libraries, Kennedy Park, and Woodbridge City Hall.
