In addition to emphasizing the general need for drainage in the arid regions with reference to seepage and alkali problems, this bulletin is intended as a practical treatise covering all engineering phases of farm drainage, from the general observations concerning specific needs of drainage, to the realizations of successful reclamation. It is made up of two parts for convenience in handling and distribution, Part I, Manual of General Instruction, and Part II, Practical Discussion of Problems.
