Conservation Repairs

Dry weather is making this a good time to do repairs on conservation practices that were overtaxed in the wet spring.  You can see in the top photo where the ridge overtopped this spring and washed a gully.  Timely repairs keep the situation from getting worse.  The customer is using a farm tractor and scraper.  You can see how good it looks in the bottom photo.  Top it off with a cover crop to hold the soil till spring. 
Water and Sediment Control basin overtopped this spring

A big tractor with a scraper makes the repair short work. 

Cleaning out the basin adds capacity for next year.
