HIGHWAY AND AGRICULTURAL DRAINAGE PRACTICE

THE PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES OF THE ILLINOIS DIVISION OF HIGHWAYS IN THE TREATMENT OF INTERRELATED HIGHWAY AND AGRICULTURAL DRAINAGE AND EROSION CONTROL HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED OVER A PERIOD OF MANY YEARS. THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO ASSEMBLE AND ANALYZE DATA RELATING TO THE PRACTICES AND PROCEDURES FOLLOWED BY HIGHWAY AUTHORITIES IN CONTROLLING HIGHWAY AND AGRICULTURAL DRAINAGE WATERS. INFORMATION WAS COLLECTED FROM HIGHWAY AUTHORITIES, GOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES, CONSULTANTS, AND PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS LOCATED BOTH IN ILLINOIS AND IN OTHER STATES. EMPHASIS WAS PLACED ON DRAINAGE PRACTICES AND RPOCEDURES RATHER THAN ON DESIGN DETAILS. THE RESUME OF THE PRACTICES FOLLOWED BY HIGHWAY AUTHORITIES AND OTHERS TOGETHER WITH THE COMPILATION OF THE DRAINAGE LAWS CAN PROVIDE HIGHWAY AND AGRICULTURAL ADMINISTRATORS WITH AN IMPORTANT TOOL TO ASSIST IN THE ESTABLISHMENT OF SOUND DRAINAGE POLICIES.
