8422. Anon.. 1990. Gully washers show strip value.. Whitman Co. Gazette, Colfax, WA p. 9. 7/19/90.
Several cloudbursts in Whitman Co. during May and June moved 150-200 tons of soil per acre off slopes. Some flats were covered with six to 18 inches of sediment. Rills and gullies that started on summer fallow strips were mostly blocked or dissipated by the cropped strips below. A field that had been chiseled but not rodweeded did not erode at all. On long summer fallow slopes, there were gullies 30 inches wide and a foot or more deep.
