The Swales and Pond Fill from a Heavy Rain

Today I did another video walking around the swale project after a rain.

Last night and this morning we had second good waves of rain. After the first rain, the upper swale was almost full. Then the second wave came through. The swale filled and overflowed to the spillway. The pond filled up and it didn’t take long at all for the lower swale to fill.

I also focused on the fig trees. They are a great example of how productive the swales can be. Click here to read my earlier post about the fig trees.
