Joint Drainage District 1
Iowa | Water
ISG developed designs to allow surface drainage to flow into an existing open ditch.
The soil conditions posed various challenges for this clean out of an open ditch project.
Sandy soils provided challenging conditions for this clean out of an open ditch designed to allow surface drainage to flow into an open ditch. Multiple 7-inch rains during construction made conditions challenging and dewatering was necessary. Tile installation and a headwall also known as an aluminum drop structure allows flow to the existing open ditch.
