New leaflet on the controlled drainage installation process

Institute for Environmental Solutions (IES) has produced a step-by-step leaflet on how to adapt an existing drainage system to a controlled drainage system.

Controlled drainage systems allow farmers to reduce unnecessary water loss and adapt to water scarcity, as well as reducing flood risks. Moister soils also generally reduce GHG emissions.

As part of the project, the Institute for Environmental Solutions is testing controlled drainage methods on the farms "Rožkalni" and "Tilbe".

The leaflet in Latvian is available here: Meliorācijas sistēmas pielāgošana kontrolētajai drenāžai.
