Not available – first paragraph follows: Subsurface drainage problems in farming areas historically have been dealt with by installing systems to collect and convey drainage water to a disposal site. While these systems remove drainage water as it is generated, no source reduction is considered. The saline and toxic nature of drainage water in the San Joaquin Valley, however, precludes this traditional disposal method.
