The Iowa Agricultural Drainage Well Research and Demonstration Project was established by the Iowa Groundwater Protection Act.

That legislation charged the Department to conduct a research and demonstration project to address concerns about contamination of groundwater through use of agricultural drainage wells (ADWs).

Agricultural drainage wells constructed in IA in early ’s to provide outlets for surface H. O runoff & tile drainage from croplands.

A drilled shaft funnels/diverts drainage water into existing bedrock. Key concept is VULNERABILITY. In Iowa, proximity to the Mississippian aquifer (Wright, Humboldt - Pocahontas Co.) and the Devonian Agricultural drainage wells are required to be registered both with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources as a part of the Groundwater Protection Act, and with the U.S.

In the early to mids, some farmers who needed to provide drainage for their fields installed Agricultural Drainage Wells (ADWs). //3/13/guest-post-agricultural-drainage-wells. This report summarizes the monitoring at the piezometers, a network of tile lines, private wells and surface-water sites.

This data and the results of previous investigations in this region are used to evaluate the impacts of drainage wells on groundwater Terms Used In Iowa Code Agricultural drainage well: means a vertical opening to an aquifer or permeable substratum which is constructed by any means including but not limited to drilling, driving, digging, boring, augering, jetting, washing, or coring, and which is capable of intercepting or receiving surface or subsurface drainage water from land directly or by a drainage Agricultural drainage wells in Iowa: hydrogeologic settings and water-quality implications.

This publication provides guidelines for drainage improvements installed on Iowa's agricultural land.

It provides legal, soil management, and engineering information to farmers, engineers, contractors, farm planners, and others associated with drainage system planning, construction, and management.

That tile reflects a major part of Iowa’s agricultural history that has been buried, literally, for generations, yet this history continues to influence farming methods, especially in the prairie pothole regions of north-central Iowa and northwest Iowa.

“In general, ag drainage in Iowa got its start aroundbut this varied a lot In Iowa, where agricultural drainage wells are commonly used, pesticides are more commonly found in ground water than are industrial chemicals (Ground Water Monitor, ).

An “agricultural drainage well” is a well constructed for the purpose of draining, or which drains, water from agricultural land to an aquifer (underground), excluding drainage tile intakes which outlet to the surface.
