Our multistate project “Managing Water for Increased Resiliency of Drained Agricultural Landscapes”, also known as “Transforming Drainage”, is a collaborative effort aimed at addressing important drainage management questions through the assessment and development of new water storage practices and technologies. Drainage is an essential component of the landscape to provide suitable growing conditions for the crops that feed and support both local and global communities. However, this infrastructure also creates a pathway for water and nutrient losses to occur. Increasing water storage on the landscape can provide greater water security for growing crops while supporting water quality efforts, which are of growing interest to landowners and the public. The vision for this project is that the process of designing and implementing agricultural drainage will be transformed so that storing water in the landscape will be considered for every drainage system as a foundation for resilient and productive agricultural systems.
