Terrace Outlets and Farm Drainageways

Description: "This bulletin is a compilation of the best information now available for farmers on the construction and use of terrace outlets and the protection, improvement, and maintenance of other sloping drainageways. The term "drainageways" as used in this bulletin refers primarily to channels of surface drainage in the upper reaches of watersheds or in unit drainage basins. 'Outlet' is a more restricted term and refers only to drainageways that are provided to receive and convey the discharge from the ends of terraces. The scope of this material is limited to surface runoff-disposal measures required in upland or rolling terrain where slopes are steep enough to cause channel erosion. It does not cover surface drainage or underdrainage of flatlands where natural drainage is inadequate." -- p. ii

Stock-Water Developments: Wells, Springs, and Ponds

Description: "The need for effective utilization of grazing areas and the scarcity of stock water have led to unprecedented activity in the development of water supplies during the last few years as a part of conservation practices in range and pasture areas. Economical construction, planned distribution, and adequacy of stock-watering centers are essential to profitable grazing enterprises. Inadequate coordination of stock-water developments with necessary conservation practices and the improper location or construction of these facilities have made many water supplies unsatisfactory. This bulletin deals with the requirements and development of stock-water supplies suitable for grazing areas." -- p. ii
