The Plug and Pond Treatment: Restoring Sheetflow to High Elevation Slope Wetlands in New Mexico

By Bill Zeedyk, Steve Vrooman, New Mexico Environment Department, and Surface Water Quality Bureau Wetlands Program

This field guide is intended to inform those who depend on the soil and its life-giving properties. This guide discusses ways to regenerate soil so that it holds more water, supports more vegetation, and reduces soil erosion. In the end, soil conservation will reduce “non-point source pollution” in surface watercourses. This guide focuses on affordable and replicable techniques based on natural processes and advocates the use of low-cost and locally available, natural materials.
