Stormwater Management

The Township of Cranbury is committed to implementing stormwater management practices that promote clean waterways and healthy watersheds. 

Effective stormwater management will:

  • Recharge our local groundwater aquifers
  • Reduce erosion and scour of stream banks
  • Protect wetlands and aquatic ecosystems
  • Reduce downstream flooding 
  • Reduce pollution and sedimentation of our streams
