Green Infrastructure

Striving to reduce stormwater runoff and consequent local flooding and pollution of our local streams and rivers into the Rahway River watershed.

You may know us from...

  • Our involvement in a Westfield Impervious Cover Assessment, Green Infrastructure Action Plan, and Green Infrastructure Strategic Plan. These plans provide us with a 10-year roadmap to effectively add green infrastructure and reduce stormwater runoff in our community.  
  • The NJ Adopt-a-Drain program. We became the first municipality on the East Coast to establish this volunteer program. Learn more  >
  • The Tamaques Park Rain Garden! We helped complete the installation of Westfield’s first demonstration rain garden at Tamaques Park. This 2700 square foot series of gardens features perennials and native plantings. Learn more >
