Natural Infrastructure and Storm Water Management
Each natural infrastructure Amigos de los Rios creates includes an element of storm water management bio swales.
Bio swales are designed to remove pollution and debris from surface runoff water were included at Circle Park to absorb storm water into the soil. They consist of a swaled drainage course with gently sloped sides, filled with vegetation they help direct water flow, when heavy rains hit, water collects under the ground where it can be filtered by soil. This process reduces run-off into storm sewers and road ditches and keeps the water in the soil for the plants and shrubs in the park.
