REPORT OF SUBCOMMITTEE ON DRAINAGE AND DRAINAGE STRUCTURES

DRAINAGE PRACTICES ARE DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT IN HUMID REGIONS WHERE VEGETATION CAN BE RELIED UPON TO CONTROL EROSION, AS COMPARED WITH THOSE IN DRY REGIONS WHERE VEGETATION CAN ONLY BE ESTABLISHED WITH DIFFICULTY. IN REGIONS OF DEFICIENT RAINFALL, THE EMPHASIS IS ON KEEPING WATER AWAY FROM HIGHWAYS. IN BOTH HUMID AND DRY REGIONS, WATER SHOULD BE DISCHARGED FROM THE HIGHWAY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, BUT SHOULD NOT CAUSE DAMAGE TO PROPERTY BELOW THE HIGHWAY. /AUTHOR/
