Mission Statement

75th Anniversary - August 1, 2015

District Program - 1940

Sacramento Mountains Watershed Restoration

Small dams can be temporary or permanent; they are constructed across a drainage ditch, swale, or channel to lower the speed of concentrated flows for a certain design range of storm events. A dam can be built from wood logs, stone, pea gravel-filled sandbags or bricks and cement. Slowing runoff speeds will reduce surface erosion as well as gully erosion in the channel and allows the sediment to establish.

 

Anyone interested in participating in the next round of funding should complete the Erosion Control Sign-Up form and return it to the office at 3501 Mesa Village Drive, Alamogordo, NM.
