Abstract

A LTHOUGH contour banks have been used in this State for many years to lead water into earth tanks or "dams," it is only comparatively recently that the idea has become really popular.

Thanks to the publicity given to this matter during the last three years many farmers now know that dams may be filled by contour banks, but because they do not know the finer points of the method, they are apt to mislead themselves into thinking that their territory is unsuitable for putting it into practice.
