BIOSWALES

Bioswales capture dirty water from roads and parking lots, infiltrating runoff into the ground and cleaning it naturally.  They are planted with vegetation that helps clean polluted water.  They can be installed as meandering or straight channels depending on the land that's available, and are designed to maximize the time rainwater spends in the swale.
