Infiltration Trench

Infiltration trenches are devices that are designed to fill with stormwater runoff and let it soak into the surrounding soil. These devices allow the water to be filtered and allow biogeochemical processes in the soil to treat the water and remove pollutants. They are most effective for small drainage areas.
