Drainage Contractor selects 2023 GroundBreakers

February 13, 2023  By Drainage Contractor

Drainage Contractor has successfully selected the four honorees who make up the 2023 class of GroundBreakers.

This is the second year Drainage Contractor has offered this recognition program, which spreads the word on contractors, researchers, designers and advocates who are changing the game. Whether they’ve been part of revolutionary research, changed the way they do business in an innovative fashion or found a whole new way to look at drainage and water management, these GroundBreakers deserve recognition.

Please join us in congratulation the following honorees:

  • Chris Hay, Iowa Soybean Association
  • Gary Sands University of Minnesota
  • Jacob Handsaker, Hands On Tiling and Drainage
  • LaVerne Weber, Grade Solutions

Their stories will be told in a print feature in the May 2023 issue of Drainage Contractor, which will also contain a special feature to mark the 50th anniversary of the publication.


Following the print feature, their stories will be shared individually as podcast episodes in our AgAnnex Talks series, set to roll out this summer.

Congratulations to Chris, Gary, Jacob and LaVerne!
