              Zuni Bowl Technique

Zuni Bowl TechniqueThis structure is placed at the "head" or beginning of a gully, preventing the headcut from eroding further upstream. In essence this is a constructed "step pool" where the impact of the waterfall is dissipated by the water in the pool of the zuni bowl. After flow slows or stops, sediments such as sand and clay are left behind in the bowl and anchored by native vegetation growing through the rocks.
