Ramanessin Watershed Restoration - Phase II Implementation Projects - Holmdel Township, New Jersey

By Brian Friedlich, Kleinfelder


The Ramanessin Phase II Implementation Projects were the culmination several phases that included a diagnostic study, restoration plan, and two phases of implementation projects in the Ramanessin Brook watershed.   Funding was provided through a Clean Water Act 319(h) grant awarded by the New Jersey Department of Environmental    Protection    (NJDEP)    to Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders, and administered by the Monmouth County Division  of  Engineering  and  Monmouth  County  Parks  System.    The  restoration  projects consisted  of  bioretention  basins,  rain  gardens, outfall  restorations,  streambank  stabilization,  and in-stream restoration structures.  The projects were located at the Holmdel High School, Holmdel Park and the Ramanessin Conservation Area #2 (Chase Tract) in Holmdel Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey.  Construction was completed over the course of the summer and fall of 2013 by Dawson Corporation and James R. Lentile, Inc.

Monmouth County Park personnel provided critical day-to-day construction oversight, without which the grant would not have been able to fund as many implementation projects. The Holmdel Township Board of Education became an important partner, enthusiastically supporting the project implementation at Holmdel High School. The Holmdel Township Environmental Commission  also  partnered  on  and  supported  the  project.  The design  team  consisted  of Kleinfelder (formerly Omni Environmental LLC) and AECOM.
