Tour of our recently installed swales

Posted by Jack Spirko almost 6 years ago

In Nov we installed 525 feet of swale in our eastern pasture. The area is about .7 acres in size, there are 525 feet of swale with a holding capacity of about 23,000 gallons. One hour after completion it rained about one inch in a 90 minute period.
