    Type of Runoff Managed:

     This rain garden manages runoff from the Ethicon parking lot before it is sent down        the grass towards a near-by stream.

    Ethicon and Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program faculty and
    staff were present for the installation of this rain garden installation.  The rain garden
    was designed to be 200 square feet and required two curb cuts.  One cut was
    needed to allow water to enter the rain garden and the second to route overflow
    from large storms into the existing curb/gutter system.
