vegetated waterwaysDescription and Benefits

A vegetated waterway is a constructed channel that is shaped or graded to the required dimensions and established in suitable vegetation for the stable conveyance of runoff. It conveys runoff without causing erosion or flooding and improves water quality.

When to use Vegetated Waterways

Vegetated waterways are only effective when the amount of water conveyed will not exceed vegetated channel design with respect to erosion and flooding.
