Project Description: The project consisted of the design and development of construction contract documents for an offline bioswale in accordance with the Iowa Storm Water Management Manual. The bioswale was designed to capture and infiltrate the run-off from storm events up to and including 1.25 inches of rainfall. The bio-cell was vegetated with native forbes and grasses to promote infiltration, remove sedimentation, and lower run-off water temperatures prior to ultimate discharge into Iowa’s only urban trout stream.
