Right of Way Bioswales

Right of Way Bioswales Right of Way Bioswales Right of Way Bioswales



Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens
A Project of the Department of Environmental Protection,
the Department of Parks & Recreation, the Department of Transportation,
and the Department of Design and Construction

Sited uphill from catch basins, these bioswales divert stormwater runoff from the combined sewer system, thereby decreasing the discharge of combined sewer overflow into the local waterways during rainstorms. Similar in appearance to a standard street tree pit, but specially designed to capture and absorb water, these bioswales feature engineered soils and versatile native plantings that are tolerant of both wet and dry conditions.
