Point of Interest Details

A bioswale is basically a trench filled with porous materials and vegetation to reduce runoff and increase groundwater recharge. The Tower Road bioswale captures runoff from the road and sidewalk and filters it through diverse plant beds. Five different plant groupings were planted to test their suitability to these difficult growing conditions.
