Swales are shallow, broad and vegetated channels that store and/or convey road surface runoff and remove pollutants. Hydrorock natural aquifer block swales can be designed as conveyance structures to pass the runoff to the next stage of the Hydrorock treatment train, or to buffer run off and promote infiltration where soil and groundwater conditions allow.
In all cases, Hydrorock swale solutions mitigate flooding caused by run off and prevent rainwater overloading the sewer system where clean water becomes contaminated.
Installation is very simple and quick with minimal disruption.
Blocks are pre-wrapped with filter membrane, so the excavation needs to be only as large as the system (no access is required to fit the membrane).
