Over the past 20 years nearly $130 million in construction funds and nearly $500,000 in planning assistance funds have been secured for projects involving the Regional Center.

Raritan River Rain Barrel Rebate Program

rain-barrel programme

What is a rain barrel?

A rain barrel collects and stores rainwater from a roof. It prevents the rainwater from becoming stormwater runoff that picks up pollutants and carries them into storm drains, streets, or streams. Rain barrels allow you to store and conserve water while at the same time, help to keep our rivers and reservoirs clean.

Why are the NJ Water Supply Authority and the Regional Center Partnership offering rebates on rain barrels?

Because there are so many rooftops, driveways, and roads in Somerville, Bridgewater and Raritan, this area is a concern for water quality. Programs here can make a difference in reducing pollution and easing stream erosion caused by heavy stormwater. The Regional Center Partnership administers the Raritan River Rain Barrel Rebate Program with a grant funded by the NJ Water Supply Authority.
