There are three swales on the field, each with a V-notch weir at the end to measure surface runoff (flow, sediment, nutrients) leaving the field during precipitation events. The middle swale has a 10 foot buffer strip in place to determine if it will improve water quality and reduce sediment from leaving the field.
