Ole Miss Green Week: Bioswale

Watch video of the Bioswale.




Jeff McManus (pointing), director of landscape services at the University of Mississippi, shows off the university’s new bioswale Monday morning near Crosby Hall as part of the university’s Green Week 2009 activities. A bioswale uses rocks and plants to slow rainwater runoff to help purify water and reduce erosion. University officials plan to use more of the features to help control runoff problems in other areas of campus. UM photo by Robert Jordan.
