Abstract/Contents:Discusses bioswales as potential "environmentally sound water treatment methods," explaining that bioswales' "shallow depressions are designed to slow water runoff and filter out contaminants with natural materials, such as grasses, ground covers, perennials or riprap." Profiles Kroger Park bioswale in Salem, Oregon, highlighting its construction. States that "the bioswale has been shown to reduce sediment loads and thereby reduce pollution to the stream...The plantings have also been very successful and are thriving, providing shade to the creek and wildlife habitat."
