Thy clean pollution from run off water. So normally polluted water gets cleaned and the runoff that goes into the lakes, rivers and oceans are cleaned.June 29, 2021 at 1:18 pm #20543AnonymousMember
Swales are examples of reusing rain water or excess rain water for the sake of environmental conservation to eliminate waste of this valuable resource for the good of this planet.June 29, 2021 at 1:19 pm #20545AnonymousMember
Swales reduce the amount of water that goes into storm drains and into sewage treatment. In a storm this prevents sewage overflow into local waterways, and also reduce the amount of toxins and pollution present.June 29, 2021 at 1:20 pm #20546AnonymousMember
A sustainable way to reduce pollution and increase health benefits and healthier living conditionsJune 29, 2021 at 1:21 pm #20548AnonymousMember
Storm water overwhelms our city’s sewage system. This results in residential and commercial waste water being dumped into fresh waterways before being treated- causing pollution. Bioswales use engineered soils, absorbent plants, and porous concrete to slow the rate of storm water flowing into the sewer. This gives the sewers time to drain properly and waste water gets treated as it was intended- avoiding excess water pollution. Passive infrastructure like bioswales reduce human impact on the environment while using few resources to upkeep and are therefore a perfect example of green building.June 29, 2021 at 1:21 pm #20549AnonymousMember
Bioswales are examples of green building as in order to build a rain garden, the curb has to first be extended out. To do this, the concrete has to be excavated, filled with eco material such as geo-textile, stones, and engineered soil. Once this process is complete, gardening can then take place. Plants are inserted and an inlet is placed allowing rain water to enter sewer systems offsetting the volume of fluid entering treated sewer water. The benefits are then improved water quality, creating a more habitable city.June 29, 2021 at 1:22 pm #20550AnonymousMember
The article is straightforward and clear. Swales are a good example of green building because instead of using toxins and chemical to treat our waters, this approach uses nature. The rain gardens will naturally cleanse the water as well as prevent the overflow of the storm sewer. In addition, plants are a great for urban areas where there typically aren’t many gardens or green in general. More oxygen, clean water and beauty. Win, win, win.June 29, 2021 at 1:23 pm #20551AnonymousMember
The gardens are allowing the rainwater to be treated through a small sewage system that uses plants and soil. This allows cleaner water to re- enter the seas with less chemical treatment to sewage water. This example of green initiative allows the communities waste, to not only get trapped through the water cycle and clean the air pollutants when it rains, but also makes those pollutants food for much needed vegetation in those communities, giving back oxygen to its surrounding residents.June 29, 2021 at 1:23 pm #20552AnonymousMember
They are sustainable and economical infrastructures that can help combat pollutants that affect the environment.June 29, 2021 at 1:23 pm #20554AnonymousMember
BIOSWALES ARE AN EXAMPLE OF GREEN BUILDING BECCAUSE, THEY ARE COST EFFECTIVE, RESILITENT AND SUSTATAINABLE. TO TIMPROVE WATER QUALITY. REDUCE EWER OVERFLOW, AND FLOODING, ENVIORNMENTAL AND HEALTHRISK. REDUCES SEWAGE OVERFLOW INTO LOCAL WATERWAYS, INCREASE STREETS DRAINAGE AND REDUCES AMOUNT OF WATER THAT FLOWS INTO STORM SEWERS. REDUCES TOXINS AND OTHER POLLUTANTS IN WATERJune 29, 2021 at 1:23 pm #20555AnonymousMember
Bioswales are a cost affective and sustainable way to improve water quality by collecting run off water and cleaning it therefore reducing pollution. Bioswales collect over 8 millions of gallons of rainwater a year cleaning it and Also reducing sewer overflow.June 29, 2021 at 1:24 pm #20556AnonymousMember
Swales are examples are green bulding because it helps improve water quality, reduces sewer overflow as well as floods, enviornmental, and health risks.June 29, 2021 at 1:24 pm #20557AnonymousMember
It is a great example of green building because it is cost effective and sustainable way to contain storm impacts. It is a good way to control combined sewage overflow and improve water quality. It also reduces toxins, pollutants, and makes streets greener especially in flood prone areas.June 29, 2021 at 1:24 pm #20558AnonymousMember
swales are examples of green building because it is effective tools in urban areas that improve water quality, reducing sewer overflow as well as flood, environmental, and health risks. Swales also provide an alternative to storm sewers.
