Transforming Drainage Website


The Transforming Drainage project (2015 – 2021) was an 8-state project led by agricultural engineers, soil scientists, agronomists, economists, social scientists, and database and GIS specialists. Their vision was to transform the process of designing and implementing agricultural drainage to include water storage in the landscape. The team focuses on advancing the practices of controlled drainage or drainage water management, saturated buffers, and drainage water recycling. The project brings together research from sites across the Midwest to learn how to improve crop production and water quality within tile-drained landscapes.
