Drainage of Irrigated Lands

Description: Report discussing "the drainage of irrigated lands which have been seriously injured or rendered wholly unproductive by the seepage of irrigation water or by the rise of alkali, or by both combined.... This report not only describes the condition of the land, the details of its draining, and the results which were obtained in particular cases, but gives carefully drawn deductions from the experiments, together with directions for draining lands which have become too wet or too alkaline under the ordinary methods of irrigation for profitable cultivation. Methods of draining are not so well established for irrigated land as for land in humid areas, which fact suggests the propriety of describing methods that have been tested in specific cases." -- p. 2
