Where does this stormwater runoff flow next? Runoff from this facility as well as the nearby Verona Pond first flows to the ditch along the side of the Railroad Trail. Near Toledo street it goes in a pipe which takes the runoff to Fever Creek and then into Whatcom Creek.
What’s special about this place? This small facility can be difficult to identify. It hides itself as a grassy depression in the ground. Plants in the bioswale slow the flow of runoff and cause particles to settle into the soil. Nutrients and other contaminants are removed by the vegetation and roots.
