The Swales and Pond Fill to Capacity from a Heavy Rain

Last night a band of heavy rain came through. This morning I captured this quick video of the results.

First the upper swale fills to capacity from both ends. Then the spillway in the middle overflows and carries the water down to the pond. The pond fills to the point that is overflows at the spillway and fills the lower swale.

Meanwhile our pool reach 100% capacity from the same rain. With all the fruit trees starting to bloom, it will be interesting to see how they do in the swale environment. I’m optimistic the growing season is going to be a good one.

Here’s the video:
