Number of bioretention/rain garden projects designed and constructed by the Water Resources Program at Rutgers University Cooperative Extension (state-level)

This metric counts the total number of bioretention/rain garden projects completed in New Jersey that have been designed and constructed by the Water Resources Program at Rutgers University Cooperative Extension. The number was obtained from the National Low Impact Development (LID) Atlas , which is an online resource providing geo-referenced examples of innovative stormwater practices across the country. Rain gardens are just one of a variety of green infrastructure projects that slow the flow of stormwater in order to improve water quality, increase infiltration, and/or reduce flood risk.
