Do you know what a bioswale is?
If not, you're not alone. A bioswale is a green infrastructure solution that can be used to manage stormwater runoff. They are essentially trenches filled with plants and soil that help filter pollutants from the water before it enters our waterways. Bioswales are becoming more and more popular, as municipalities and developers seek ways to reduce their environmental impact. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of using bioswales for stormwater runoff management.
Then, there's bioswales; These eco-friendly stormwater management systems have several benefits over their typical counterparts.
1. They are a better way to manage stormwater, as pollutants are filtered out naturally through the soil.
2. Flexibility - Due to their linear orientation, they can fit easily into parking lot areas and along roads.
3. When designed and installed properly, they have reduced maintenance costs.
4. They are Aesthetically pleasing. Using native plants and vegetation, they are a dramatic improvement over the typical stormwater detention pond.
While not all topography will allow for a bioswale system, they should be considered whenever possible. They are an excellent way to manage stormwater in an eco-friendly manner. Have you considered using a bioswale on your next project?
