Gabion structures in Santa Clara
As Climate Changes, Santa Clara Strives To Become Resilient To Worsening Fires, Floods: Rock-filled gabion baskets line the Santa Clara Creek where it flows under a state road in Santa Clara Pueblo. High flows of water from the burn scar in Santa Clara Canyon and the watershed of Santa Clara Creek threaten the village, and the mesh-and-rock gabion structures assist with flood control.
