To better filter the on-site storm water run-off from the newly added section of the parking lot, a bio-filter was provided by lining the drainage swale with native grasses. These grasses capture the pollutants normally present in the storm water run-off and the filtered run-off is then channeled and collected into an underground storm drain. For aesthetic purposes, these grasses are arranged in natural patterns along both sides of the channel to highlight their form, texture and color.
