2014 Overholt Drainage School

The 2014 Overholt Drainage School will be held March 10-14 at the Fulton SWCD and County Extension office in Wauseon. This year’s program includes three sessions: 1) Agricultural subsurface drainage: System design and installation; 2) Drainage water management: Controlled drainage system design and installation; and 3) Water table management with subirrigation: System design, installation and management. The session on Subirrigation has not been taught since 2005. Dr. Bud Belcher (MSU Retired) will lead this session.

The Overholt Drainage School is organized to provide continuing education for land improvement contractors, soil and water conservation technicians, farmers, engineers, crop consultants, educators and others interested in advancing their knowledge of basic concepts, principles, and skills related to the purpose, design, layout, construction, and management of Soil and Water Conservation Systems. The School has been taught for over 50 years.
