Drain Connections are artificial structures, represented as a point on a map, that allow water to move from one drainage feature to the next. For example, a tile drainage outlet is an artificial structure that allows water to exit a tile drainage system and enter another feature, like a municipal drain, private ditch, natural watercourse, catchbasin, or another tile drainage system.
The objective of this project is to create a spatial database of the drain connections present in agricultural drainage systems and include information such as:
As data is added and updated, Drain Connections will often match up with the Constructed Drains layer or Tile Drainage Area layer and these layers will support and enhance each other.
Potential users and uses of the data include:
