The Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program has partnered with the New Jersey Water Supply Authority Watershed Protection Program to offer rebates to homeowners that build rain gardens. Since 2013, more than 60 area residents have attended these workshops, and more than 10 rain gardens were installed in 2014 through this rebate program… This program is open to residents of Bridgewater, Raritan and Somerville to learn the basics of rain garden installation and design a rain garden for your home. At the workshop, attendees will be offered the opportunity to sign up for free rain garden design sessions with Rutgers landscape professionals. With detailed guidance in hand, rebates of up to $450 may be awarded to participating residents who install a rain garden on their property.
