Surveyor's Report on WISALTS Soil Conservation System created by Unknown.

Comments: Bank A had a couple of deep pockets, one below rock B fairly straight forward. A lot of deep sand to the north end of C but it picks up a lot of water causing big problems below. Unpushed section above dam to fill it, overflow covered by bank below dam. Bank D very awkward - sheet is dust. Am not sure if they got it out eventually. Erosion a problem on that hill between ironstone and deep sand very difficult to get a good line.

Review Comments: Scald is minimal - but loss of soil fertility off long slope is tremendous, owner has emphasis on wrong problem.
