Design Of The Month
Solving Ponding Issues From Depressions And 'Micro Furrows'
A vegetable farm in Illinois has ponding issues due to depressions which are exacerbated by micro furrows created by wheel traffic.

Proposed Topography

An OptiSurface 2Way design was generated for the field.  Ridges were used to define the high points and valleys were used for the tail drains.

Cross slope parameters were added to direct water direction. The Main Slope arrow shows (+) and (-) signs to the left and right respectively if north is pointing up. This serves as a guide for the cross slope direction (+/-).

Feature Of The Month

Example:


In the field for the design of the month, a Profile Line is added with four points to form an 'L' shape showing how water drains from the highest point of the ridge down to the taildrain exit.

The blue dashed line represents the Profile Polyline and the red dot in the Map points to where the cursor is in the Profile Window.
