Impervious Cover Assessments, Impervious Cover Reduction Action Plans, and Green Infrastructure Feasibility Studies for New Jersey Future's Mainstreaming Green Infrastructure Program


The Rutgers Cooperative Extension’s (RCE) Water Resources Program has developed customized green infrastructure plans, as part of New Jersey Future’s Mainstreaming Green Infrastructure program, that document all types of impervious cover in a given municipality and provide an action plan with specific recommendations for doable green infrastructure projects that will reduce runoff and pollution.

Municipalities in the project area:

Links are provided to the impervious cover assessments (ICA), impervious cover reduction action plans (RAP), RAP web maps, and green infrastructure feasibility studies completed to date for the pilot towns of Byram, Hammonton, and Newton.
