Bioswale at Bayfront Park - What is a Bioswale? A bio-Swale is a form of bioretention designed to capture and treat stormwater runoff from hard surfaces like sidewalks, driveways, roadways and rooftops. A shallow basin is excavated and lined with rocks to collect debris and pollution while conveying stormwater away for critical infrastructure. The swale component provides pre-treatment of stormwater to remove coarse to medium sediments while the plants help remove finer particulates and associated contaminates.
