A contour bunding system is designed keeping in mind the spacing of both horizontal and vertical cross-section. The bund cross-section includes base width, side slope and height. The height is capable of storing runoff from rainfall of 10 year at recurring intervals.
Contour bunding is the construction of small bund across the slope of the land on a contour so that the long slope is cut into a series of small ones and each contour.
