Heritage Hall Bioswale

Quick facts:

When Gem Lake and White Bear Township built Heritage Hall in 2007, this 3,500 square foot raingarden was installed to infiltrate and treat stormwater from the part of the building and its parking lot.

Funding:

The raingarden was partially funded by a VLAWMO cost share, and the rest was covered by the building cost of the Hall.

Reason for project:

The raingarden was installed to capture stormwater from the newly-constructed building, while planting native species. The raingarden also helps towards White Bear Township’s MS4 permitting goals.

Construction:

The basin was constructed along with the building in 2007. 

Results:

After weeding and replanting in 2010, the basin functions to infiltrate stormwater and capture and treat nutrients and pollutants.
