The Randolph Middle School rain garden was installed to serve as a demonstration
    rain garden to educate homeowners, business owners and government facilities on
    how rain gardens can minimize impacts to nearby waterways.


    Type of Runoff Managed:

   The rain garden was designed to manage stormwater runoff from the mowed
   lawns behind Randolph Middle School. Any overflow water will continue through
   the garden, down the lawn.


    Approximately thirty people were present for the installation of this rain garden,
    among them faculty and students from Randolph Middle School, Raritan Highlands
    Compact, Master Gardeners of Morris County, and Rutgers Cooperative Extension
    Water Resources Program faculty and staff. This rain garden was approximately 375
    square feet, treating a drainage area of 6,000 square feet of impervious surface.
    Topsoil and sand were added to the garden during installation to help increase
