Manalapan Brook Watershed Restoration & Protection Plan

In 2004, the New Jersey Water Supply Authority (NJWSA) began developing a plan to restore water quality in Manalapan Lake. NJWSA recently expanded that project to the entire Manalapan Brook Watershed. A Watershed Restoration Plan that identifies specific recommendations to improve and protect the water resources of Manalapan Brook is under development.

A two-part demonstration project was implemented between April 2010 and October 2010. A rain garden was installed at Thompson Park in Monroe Township and a vegetated buffer was planted along the Manalapan Lake shore. Scroll through pictures in the photo gallery of the rain garden installation, which was part of a Rutgers Water Resources Program Rain Garden Specialist and Trainer Workshop.
