9 and 10 transactions and structure, surface and drainage in soutweast england by s. wooldridge, There are three major types of drains in the South East Region – surface water drains, flood mitigation and groundwater drains.

Surface water drains. Surface water drains aim to drain surface water from the landscape, generally without the requirement to intercept groundwater (i.e.

relevant in the lower South East and parts of the upper South East). Study of Surface and Sub Surface Highway Drainage System In surface drainage we have to take into account the period of frequency of flood, various drainage structure like culverts and gutters, road side channels, cross slope and side slope, catch drains, longitudinal gradients etc.

In the region to the south, the Lower South East, drainage structures were constructed by the State Government. These drains successfully removed the excess of surface water so that agricultural activities became profitable (Figure 3). In contrast, in the Upper South East, a privately constructed and uncoordinated drainageCited by: If you want an honest, reliable drain cleaning service, contact South East Drainage Services today.

surface. An efficient highway drainage system provides for the disposal of surface water from the roadway section and the elimination or control of subsurface water.

Included in a surface drainage system are the roadway crown, shoulder, curbs, gutters, drop inlets, storm drains, ditches/swales and pipes/culverts. A surface drainage system is.

This Agnote describes the design and construction of subsurface pipe drainage to drain excess water from the profiles of wet soils. It discusses the major design factors that need considering when installing subsurface pipe systems. However, there are much more technical aspects to some of these factors and a contractor experienced and well trained in subsurface drainage should be consulted.
