Drainage Water Management (DWM)
The Drainage Water Management method is more effective than traditional drainage. The DWM practice uses simple water control structures in the drainage system to manage the water table during the growing season increasing available water for the crops. This practice recognizes that open drainage systems are not beneficial at al times throughout the year.
SubSurface Irrigation (SSI)
Introducing water back into a DWM system from either a well or retention pond offers both drainage and irrigation in one system. SSI requires a lower water supply volume to operate when compared to a traditional pivot system, with no evaporation.
