Riparian Restoration Project along the Paulins Kill at Lafayette Township Park

The Wallkill River Watershed Management Group and North Jersey Resource Conservation and Development Council (NJRC&D), in partnership with Lafayette Township worked to successfully coordinate and implement riparian restoration project along the banks of the Paulins Kill within Lafayette Township Park. Native trees and shrubs were planted to help restore and strengthen the streamside vegetation within the park. Restoring such areas helps stabilize streambanks, slow stormwater runoff, trap sediment, fertilizers, pesticides and other non-point source pollutants in order to improve water quality and enhance wilidlife habitat over time.
