Floating islands, rain gardens and more help protect local water quality

NEW YORK, Warren County SWCD – The Warren County Soil and Water Conservation District has some interesting water-quality projects underway, and a group of state and local officials got a tour of a few on Wednesday. Several could be seen at Gurney Lane Recreation Area in Queensbury.

Nick Rowell, a natural resource specialist with the district, said a 630-square-foot rain garden helps filter stormwater on the site. The plants suck up nutrients. Too many nutrients in water bodies can lead to problems like algal blooms.
