2019 Northeast Region Eagle Project of the Year: A smarter way to filter storm water

Posted on Aug 22 2019 - 11:29am

When it rains in cities and towns across the U.S., it pours. And in this case, “it” refers to oil, salt, gasoline and other debris that gets washed down the road and into rivers, lakes and streams. Bioswales are nature’s filter for this repugnant runoff. Strategically placed along roadsides and filled with mulch or native plants, bioswales absorb the gunk and let clean water pass through. Or, at least that’s the way they’re supposed to work. Unfortunately, all 30 bioswales in the borough of Ohiopyle, Pa., had seen better days. They were clogged with debris and overrun with weeds. For the past seven years, officials had tried, unsuccessfully, to fix the bioswales. And then, at last, a Scout came along.  Click to read more about this AWARD WINNING EAGLE PROJECT.
