Back in the Depression, the CCC constructed various swales close to Tucson, AZ. They exist – and function – these days.

The major swale is a big, crescent-shaped stricture with a thriving – if little – eco-technique that thrives owing to the swale. This shows a meadow behind the swale, even tho it final rained back in Aug.

The grass is knee-higher in most areas.

fat cactus just west of main swale.jpg

this cactus is positioned ‘downstream’ of the major swale. As you can see, it is fairly ‘fat’ with water. The prime of the pole is about 16.five ft above nearby terrain. You can see 1 of the smaller sized ‘bar’ swales behind me.
