Resource Inventory

Surface Runoff

Surface runoff occurs at the lower end of the border strip. It usually happens when the water that did not get absorbed into the soil runs off. When using the border strip system, runoff is actually expected. This is because, in many cases, no runoff means that an insufficient amount of water was applied.
