Check it out: Identifying potential suitability for subirrigation in the Midwest

A tool by the Transforming Drainage group uses layers of map data to identify suitable locations for subirrigation in the Midwest United States.

The tool identifies agricultural land that has a restricting layer that causes the water table to rise, permeable soil above the restricting layer that allows water to move horizontally between tile drains, flat topography that allows economical systems and is likely to be tile-drained. A field assessment of any site is needed when evaluating a potential project.
