Hi, Village Homes in Davis has a very successful example of this. Here is an excerpt from their site: Natural Drainage - The common areas also contain Village Homes' innovative natural drainage system, a network of creek beds, swales, and pond areas that allow rainwater to be absorbed into the ground rather than carried away through storm drains. Besides helping to store moisture in the soil, this system provides a visually interesting backdrop for landscape design. http://www.villagehomesdavis.org/Design.php I'm not sure how to get good images of this other than that it was featured extensively in Bill Mollison's "The Global Gardener" - in the Urban Episode (Episode 4). http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/global.html It would also be worthwhile to contact Brad Lancaster who has presented extensively in this area. http://www.harvestingrainwater.com/
