Drainage District No. 65

Drainage District No. 65

Pocahontas County, IA

ISG was appointed to investigate and recommend drainage improvements to Drainage District No. 65’s antiquated system of open and subsurface drains. The system dated back to 1913 and had proven incapable of efficiently removing excess waters. Dedicated to giving back through support of the industries it serves, ISG engineers were actively involved in the development of the IDALS- and ISU-supported Iowa Drainage and Wetlands Landscape Systems Initiative. The Initiative combined drainage improvements with nitrate-removal wetlands for a potentially voluntary self-funded means of reducing pollution, improving water quality, improving agricultural productivity and boosting landscape diversity.
