Abstract

"The problems encountered in land drainage are comparatively simple when seen from an engineering point of view. Most problems do not require a fine scientific or mathematical analysis but are rather questions to be decided by good judgment or practical common sense. The most difficult problems encountered are financial, legal and political, therefore, in this paper considerable attention is paid to the Iowa drainage law, facts learned from practical drainage men and to the organization and operation of the different financing systems for drainage"--page 1.
