Musconetcong Watershed Association

The Musconetcong Watershed Association was gifted a property known as the Asbury Graphite Mill in order to provide a headquarters for their organization. The non-profit hired E&LP to act as project engineers for the redevelopment. The dilapidated structure was in severe disrepair and the site had a number of sensitive environmental features.

E&LP designed the site layout to provide new parking space and ADA accessibility to the restored building while also conserving areas for proposed habitat restoration. After obtaining multiple NJDEP permits for the project, a full scale habitat restoration was able to proceed on the property and a previously derelict building was reinvigorated for a new use. Working with the project architect, E&LP also assisted in obtaining LEED certification for the project which earned LEED Platinum status in large part due to the low-impact site development, conservation, and restoration approach to the project site.
