  1. Hi. I am working on a project in India. Here they are recommending leaving untouched soil (berms) across the swales to deal with the issue of when swales are dug and they are a bit unlevel on the bottom from having water flowing in the bottom in one direction or the other. On the project we are doing there are 20 people digging at one time. With language,education, and time as an issue to work out getting the swale exactly level in the bottom what do you recommend? Will dirt eventually settle in the low spots evening out the bottom? How unlevel will create a problem? The biggest rainfall event here is 7 cm in a 48 hr period
