68. Infiltration Water infiltrated through Bioswales helps
A bioswale is a swale that incorporates a bioretention element (Christianson et al. 2004), promoting infiltration and filtration primarily by employing engineered media with an underdrain (Purvis et al. 2018).
The foreground one is under construction while the background one is established. Bioswales are channels designed to concentrate and convey stormwater runoff while removing debris and pollution. Bioswales can also be beneficial in recharging groundwater. Bioswales are typically vegetated, mulched, or xeriscaped.
•Swales should be sized to convey at least a 10-year storm (or about 4.3 inches in 24 hours). A road ditch can serve as a bioswale.The rock trench and wetland vegetation are notable features,along with the natural drainageway in the background that serves as a bioswale for residential runoff.
Bioswales are considered cost-effective tools for removing sediment and other particulate pollutants from stormwater runoff. The pollutant removal rates of vegetated swales vary depending on soil type and type of vegetation used. (EPA, 1999). Shallow slopes, low flow velocities, and dense vegetation all increase the effectiveness of bioswales.
