Vegetated Swales

Vegetated Swales are pathways that allow water to travel from higher to lower elevations in a controlled manner with no erosion. Swale dimensions are determined by slope and the volume of water expected to enter the swale.

Swale vegetation is comprised of agressively rooted floodplain species that are adapted to seasonal and event driven moisture variations.

The main function of Vegetated Swales is to improve water quality. Additional benefits include:

  • Habitat Creation
