Definition of Vegetated Swale

A vegetated swale is a broad, shallow channel that is planted with grasses, shrubs and trees. It slows, filters, and absorbs stormwater runoff. Vegetated swales are often used as alternatives to conventional curb and gutter systems, as they reduce water pollution and flooding.
