This site is DBN's first bioswale project, it was first established in 2016 and has since developed into a mature mix of native plant species specifically selected to tolerate large fluctuations in moisture levels and increase soil permeability.
Water from the parking lot is graded toward the center where the plants intercept, retain and filter the stormwater that flows into the swale. The site has since been used for several research projects in the College of Engineering and Biological Sciences
