The Camden SMART (Stormwater Management And Resource Training) Initiative is a community-driven movement to protect human health and quality of life, improve conditions for economic development, improve water quality, and enhance the quality of the Delaware River watershed through the broad use of green and grey infrastructure techniques. Learn how this resident-driven program has expanded from one garden in 2011 to the 2014 SMART Infrastructure Program, a multi-million project that includes 20 green infrastructure projects, creations of a waterfront park, and separation of the storm and sanitary infrastructure and the re-establishment of a channel to the backchannel of the Delaware River to mitigate flooding.
