[ARCHIVED] Swales are Swell and So Are Rain Gardens


"Swales are Swell and So Are Rain Gardens" is Episode 7 the last in the series of instructional videos the Water Board has been posting on how we can be stewards of our watersheds - which starts at home. Make sure to keep in the loop for upcoming events showcasing these videos.

When rain hits hard surfaces, it runs off and is collected by the storm drain system and can end up polluting the water body it drains to. This video focuses on alternatives to directing water off your property through creating depressions in your landscape that slow the flow and often create habitat full of native flora and fauna.
