Martin County Ditch No. 29

Martin County Ditch No. 29

Martin County, MN

This drainage system was drastically undersized for today’s standards and production practices. ISG’s improved design replaced the existing tile to achieve a higher drainage coefficient and improve the downstream effects of the system. The improvement consisted of larger tile and increased depth in the system. A new storage pond was connected to an existing wetland basin that enhanced the project and also provided storage, water quality treatment and wildlife habitat. By storing water, the drainage coefficient increased while the outlet capacity of the system decreased—protecting farmland and lakes downstream.
