What is the Camden SMART Initiative ?
The objective of the Camden SMART (Stormwater Management and Resource Training) Initiative is to develop a comprehensive network of green infrastructure programs and projects for the City of Camden. The Initiative is a collaboration between the City of Camden, Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority, Cooper’s Ferry Partnership, Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program, New Jersey Tree Foundation, NJ Department of Environmental Protection, our public-private partners, community organizations, and most importantly, Camden residents to restore and revitalize our neighborhoods. The Initiative includes neighborhood green and grey infrastructure projects, stormwater management policy development, and green infrastructure training programs.
