Rain Gardens/Vegetated Swales
Bioretention areas, or rain gardens, are landscaping features adapted to provide on-site treatment of stormwater runoff from impervious areas like roofs, paved surfaces and compacted lawn areas. This reduces polluting runoff by allowing stormwater to soak into the ground (as opposed to flowing into storm drains and surface waters which causes erosion, water pollution, flooding, and diminished groundwater). The purpose of a rain garden is to improve water quality in nearby bodies of water by reducing the amount of pollution reaching creeks and streams.
