MINNETRISTA SWALE & RETENTION CASCADE
MINNETRISTA CULTURAL CENTER
FLR was hired in by Minnetrista Cultural Center to design and construct a linear swale and retention area (to capture runoff from trail surface and direct to a bioretention area) adjacent to the White River in Muncie, Indiana.

FLR has long been active in the implementation of BMPs and stormwater best management practices at the Minnetrista Cultural Center. The driving factor behind many of the practices is an eroding stream bank adjacent to Minnetrista. Many strategies have been implemented to reduce sheet flow to the bluff. A majority of these practices include green infrastructure components like porous pavers, porous concrete trench lines, green roofs, rain gardens, bioretention swales, and constructed wetlands.

FLR was tasked to designed and install a rock cascade swale designed using the natural channel design methodology. The rock cascade was implemented to capture stormwater runoff, prevent stream bank erosion, and dissipate energy from concentrated flows that entered the structure. The cascade was constructed by FlatLand Resources and consisted of locally sourced and on-site material.
