Curb cuts allow water flowing in street gutters to be diverted into road side retention and infiltration bioswales. The water is held to slow down the accumulation of runoff in the street and limit the amount of pollution washed into rivers and lakes nearby. When one of the bioswales fills, the water simply stops flowing into it and will instead pass the curb cut, requiring relatively little adjustment to the function of water drainage on the roadway itself. Capturing stormwater runoff reduces the likelihood of flash flooding and limits the accumulation of chemicals and other pollutants.
