NRCS Conservation Engineering Division. Guidelines to help resolve conflicts between conservation and land drainage have been published recently. They are addressed to all those who are involved in land drainage, sea defence, and food production as well as those concerned about the need to conserve our Cited by: 1. imperative. Soil and water conservation is the basis of such a program, and also helps improve land impoverished by erosion and overuse—makes it more productive so that it can support more people. For effective conservation of soil and water, we must treat and use the various kinds of land according to their capability and need. To do this. The aim of this paper is to facilitate the planning and design of land drainage systems for sound land and water management for engineers and other professionals. The text of this publication provides guidelines for the appropriate identiﬁcation of drainage problems, for the planning and design of ﬁeld drainage systems (surface and subsurface) and the main drainage and disposal systems.
Agriculture Handbook Ponds—Planning, Design, Construction Figure 1 Typical embankment and reservoir An embankment pond (fig. 1) is made by building an embankment or dam across a stream or watercourse where the stream valley is depressed enough to permit storing 5 feet or more of water. The land slope may range from gentle to steep.

However, drainage is a subject which is often overlooked or downplayed. Adequate drainage is more than a necessary evil, it is a major influence on proper water management. The. Shallow relief drains relatively cheap and easy to construct, and are effective at removing surface water from flooded or ponding land. Removing static surface water reduces waterlogging and groundwater recharge and improves productivity of the soil. This page provides guidelines and design criteria for effective shallow relief drains. The Department of Primary Industries and Regional.
