Modeling Water flow using DEM (Digital Elevation Models)

Water flow Analysis showing where micro Check dams can be located Grey areas show where water can be captured using micro-check dams so every major storm will refill the  reservoir. Dark lines represent large water flow areas were larger professionally engineered  dams are needed and are likely riparian zones. White areas are those where this…

Support Desert Wildlife and Bio-Diversity During Drought

Artificial Water sources can help desert wildlife survive during drought Water scarcity can make it difficult for animals to survive during hot summer months. Life becomes even more difficult during extended droughts due reduced food supply combined with dried out water holes.   Climate change is causing more severe droughts that last longer and occur…
