Prall Road Detention Basin Project

Boro Green and Sustainable Hillsborough sponsored a rain garden planting at the Prall Road detention basin this morning with volunteers completing the project in two-and-a-half hours.

According to their press release, rain gardens help mitigate flooding from stormwater runoff, help restore natural habitats by promoting the use of native plants, and reduce maintenance by the Department of Public Works. Volunteers helped plant 620 native grass plants.

At the November 23rd Sustainable Hillsborough meeting information about rain gardens will be presented to interested residents.

Boro Green is currently creating its webpage and Sustainable Hillsborough's site is here.
