Slow And Filter Stormwater Runoff And Improve Your Site’s Aesthetic

Also known as infiltration swales, Bioswales are a form of bioretention designed to slow surface water runoff and help remove stormwater pollutants. These low-maintenance systems transport large volumes of stormwater to a discharge point, slowing the velocity and filtering the water.

As an added benefit, bioswales help recharge groundwater. Bioswales can be used in many applications, including pollutant removal, drainage retrofitting, and runoff management.

What Is The Benefit Of Using A Bioswale?

Improved Aesthetics

Liven up your facility's landscaping while still addressing stormwater management. Bioswales allow for personalization with vegetation choice.

Drainage Retrofitting

Retrofit an existing drainage ditch into a Bioswale, improving the ditch aesthetics and increasing the amount of intercepted rainfall.

Runoff Management

A bioswale can reduce the runoff volume from a typical local road to about 25% of total rainfall.

Additional Features

  • Reduce the volume of stormwater runoff
  • Remove pollutants and sediment through filtration
  • Provides a clearly defined drainage space
  • Can be incorporated into green infrastructure
