Bioretention surface water at inlet

Bioretention surface water at inlet

Hi everyone,

Occasionally you’re going to come across bioretention systems with water ponding around the inlet. It’s a bit of a problem but it’s not the end of the world. It’s a problem because it means that the water isn’t seeping into that part of the media and being treated. The plants that were planted there might not like the newly boggy conditions (think lomandra). This episode explores the causes and a few thoughts about how to manage it.

Cheers

Hi there,

At some point you’re going to go and take a look at a bioretention system not long after rain. This is great. You can learn heaps about bioretention systems during and just after rain. One thing that you can learn is how well they are draining. In this episode we discuss exactly that.

Hi everyone,

Ever turned up at a bioretention surface to find it covered in gravel?

I have.

Don’t get me wrong. Where I’m from that’s hardly considered ideal, but it does happen. So if you’re responsible for managing or maintaining bioretention systems you need to know why it might be there, and how to deal with it.

This episode aims to help with that.

Hi there,

If you’ve heard me speak about bioretention systems before you will probably know that I’m a begin fan of trees in bioretention. Once reason for that is that I think there are heaps of benefits in bioretention systems once those trees start dropping their leaves and recycling organic matter into the filter media. That’s what this video is all about.

Cheers
