A variety of tools were developed as part of the Transforming Drainage project to help with planning, evaluating, and exploring subsurface tile drainage systems and practices that can be implemented to improve water management.
The Drain Spacing Tool estimates the optimum drain spacing that maximizes economic return on investment in the drainage system.
This tool calculates the three standard coefficients (drainage rates) for characterizing hydraulic properties of subsurface drainage systems.
This tool identifies agricultural areas that are likely to have been drained for crop production in the Midwestern USA.
This map identifies land in Midwest that has a high probability of being suitable for controlled drainage.
This web mapping application identifies land in the Midwest that has a high probability of being suitable for subirrigation.
This tool provides estimates of the potential irrigation and water quality benefits from drainage water recycling.
This tool calculates the amount and value of nitrogen loss from the field through tile drains.
This tool provides visualization interfaces to explore data from research sites studying conservation drainage practices.
