New Rain Garden Project Gets Underway at Kemah Lake

Thursday, September 05, 2019


The SCMUA-Wallkill River Watershed Management Group and the Kemah Lake Association have partnered to build a demonstration rain garden at Kemah Lake. The rain garden was designed by Rutgers Water Resources Program and the excavation is being done by a local contractor who is also a lake resident.

The effort is part of the larger Paulins Kill Lakes Initiative being funded through the Delaware River Watershed Initiative. The aim of the program is to install demonstration rain gardens in several lakes in Sussex County in hopes to inspire individual homeowners to install rain gardens on their properties as well.
