Construction and Maintenance Advisory – Active Alert

  • Low Mow Zone
    The Morris County Park Commission is reducing mowing frequency in select areas. This practice allows grass and other vegetation to grow, providing food and shelter for wildlife.  Properly managed low mow zones slow stormwater runoff, allowing it to soak into the ground and replenish groundwater while reducing erosion, strain on, and pollutants in, our storm sewer system and waterbodies.  Further, reduced mowing lowers equipment operation and our carbon footprint, while enabling other projects.  Collectively, these seemingly minor efforts go a long way towards our sustainability efforts.
