Representatives from Union County municipalities and local environmental organizations joined the Union County Green Infrastructure tour over the summer to learn how green infrastructure can beautify property while helping to conserve water and reduce stormwater runoff.
The group visited examples of rain gardens, rainwater harvesting and permeable pavement in Clark, Cranford, Mountainside, Rahway, Springfield and Summit.
The tour was conducted by experts with the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County and the Rahway River Watershed Association. The Extension is supported in part by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
