Ocean Township High School Rain Garden is looking good

Welcome to the OTHS rain garden, planted by the science club with help from Rutgers Water Resources and WPBWA.
Water is slowed by the stones and then filtered by the plants before it soaks into the ground and ultimately into the brook.
The downspout was moved to this side of the wall and now feeds the garden.
These grasses thrive in areas that are inundated at times.

These stones, on the west side of the garden,  slow the water flow down and keep try to keep  it from going out into the parking lot if the rain garden overflows.

Everyone was having fun at the planting.
Burke Construction team volunteered to prepare the site. Thanks for your support.
Rutgers Water Resources Division, Michele Hartman waters the new plants.
