Day 2: Gabion Spans Wash

On day 2, a second wire cylinder was laid down in the wash and stone was added from the top until filled. The wire mesh was then closed at the top and wired shut. The photo to the left was taken downstream - looking upstream and show the completed 10-foot wide gabion spanning the dry wash.

The next step in the process is to build an apron on the downstream side of the gabion.
