Infiltration trenches

Infiltration trenches have a positive effect on soil stabilization; In addition, they are agents that promote moisture storage for crops, through the temporary storage of surface runoff. They are trapezoidal-shaped channels built level in the transversal direction of the slope. Their objective is to capture the water that runs off, reducing the erosive processes, by increasing the infiltration of water into the soil.
