For a site in close proximity to the Willamette River,
OMSI developed a parking lot where a series of vegetated swales
capture stormwater runoff from the parking lot. These densely
vegetated swales incorporate a variety of trees, grasses,
and shrubs. Small check dams slow and spread the flow. Cuts
in the curbs allow stormwater to enter the swales.
