Description Over 100 bioswales have been constructed in King County over the past ten years to treat runoff associated with residential, commercial and light industrial development. Water level fluctuation, long-term inundation, erosive flow, excessive shade, poor soils, and improper installation are the most common causes of low vegetation survival in these swales. The relative importance of these limiting factors may vary widely from swale to swale. This study was designed to identify those factors...
