Bioretention Swale

A bioretention swale is a swale with a bioretention system installed in its base.

Bioretention swales provide both stormwater treatment and conveyance functions. The swale component provides pre-treatment of stormwater to remove coarse to medium sediments while the bioretention system removes finer particulates and associated contaminants.
