The following notes are a background to the subject: Land drainage has a long history in Britain, going back to the Roman cutting of the Car Dykes in the Fens and the ditches of Romney Marsh. By the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, however, most available land had already been reclaimed by surface draining of lakes, marshes and fens.
Originally published in"this brief treatise on drainage engineering is intended for the use of those who are charged with the responsibility of making plans for and executing drainage : it is a drainage stone and not a drainage pipe issue.
• Drainage stone should not be filledto the top of the fieldtrench except for very limited conditions (the bottom of an obvious hollow). Otherwise it is an extremely expensive way of collecting little water. • Most of the stone being used for land drainage. Land drainage allows humans to bring low-productive areas (marshes, the sea bottom, inundated and waterlogged territories around water storage basins, etc.) into agricultural use and to raise the efficiency of farming.
