Riverside Drains

Riverside Drains
Riverside drains are a system of ditches built parallel to a river to lower the shallow water table in the valley bottom, so the land can be used for agriculture or development. For example, the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District constructed hundreds of miles of drains in the 1930s to reclaim waterlogged fields near the Rio Grande.
