RME #6 Texas 1/4 Dugout Gravity Flow Water SysteemProjected completion date: August 2013
Projected cost: $1000 – $1500
The pilot project is a simple solution to reduce animal pressure on sensitive riparian and erosion prone areas along the river. By adding a gravity flow system and a fence along the river we will be able to reduce pressure on approximately 0.56 kms (0.35 miles) of the river bank.
The below shows the location of the gravity flow system from an existing dugout, as well the existing fences and the location of the additional fence that will protect the river from animal pressure.This solar water system has now been used in the summer of 2012 and 2013 with great success.
