 Wordwizard Clubhouse - change in the meaning of the word berm   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
My understanding of BERM was a mound /bank of earth usually used as a protective visual/sound barrier or placed against an exterior wall or walls of a house or other building as protection against extremes of temperature.
BERM is first recorded in 1854 (as ‘berm-bank’), in the sense of ‘the bank of a canal opposite the towing path.’ So now the term had evolved from the flat path adjoining a slope or bank to the bank itself.
BERM noun: 1) a narrow shelf, path, or ledge typically at the top or bottom of a slope; also a mound or wall of earth or sand berm> 2) the shoulder of a road.

Because a berm is a steep slope, unless it's full of concrete or made of stolid, compacted clay, it is going to drain fast; water will tend to roll down it before it soaks in.
