The purpose of this course is to train stakeholders in sub-surface drainage concepts,

planning and laying out drainage systems including surveying a profile, laying out the

system, calculating tile line sizes and spacing using actual field data, making

connections, and setting up drainage control structures, NRCS program requirements,

and fixing common drainage system issues.


This is a three-day school with each day including a combination of hands-on training,

lecture and discussion, and problem solving using in-field examples. By attending this
