Brick Utilities to Host Free Public Education Event at the Brick Reservoir

The Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority (Brick Utilities) has announced a free event for the public at the Brick Reservoir at 811 Herbertsville Road on Sunday June 9th, between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM. Shari Kondrup from Brick Utilities will be discussing selfwatering planters as well as the type of potting mix and plants that are best suited for them.

A demonstration will show participants how to construct a self-watering planter from a five gallon bucket. Each participant will be provided a five gallon bucket planter and instructions, with materials provided free of charge.

Self-watering planters are conducive for growing vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers in areas with limited space. They are easy to maintain and conserve water within the landscape while providing nourishment for your family.

The event is free but registration is required since seating is limited. To register, please contact Shari Kondrup at 732-701-4282 or skondrup@brickmua.com.

This presentation is part of Brick Utilities’ “Weekend at the Reservoir” educational program. Weekend at the Reservoir is a free community education program being sponsored by Brick Utilities which focuses on local water resources, particularly the importance of the Metedeconk River and Barnegat Bay to the region, and how to conserve water. Programs are being held at the Brick Reservoir by announcement.

The Metedeconk River Watershed drains to Barnegat Bay and encompasses roughly ninety (90) square miles in both Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Starting at its headwaters in Freehold, Jackson and Millstone, the river flows eastward through Howell, Lakewood, Wall and Brick Townships before reaching Point Pleasant Borough and the Barnegat Bay.

The Metedeconk River is a critical water resource for the region. It serves as the primary water supply source for Brick Utilities, which provides drinking water to more than 100,000 area residents in Brick Township, Howell Township, Lakewood Township, Point Pleasant Borough, and Point Pleasant Beach Borough.
