Drainage Water Management (DWM) is an NRCS-approved conservation engineering practice that manages water discharges from subsurface agricultural drainage systems. A DWM structure holds water in root zones when crops need it while also allowing it to drain when there’s too much. It manages the timing and amount of water discharged from agricultural drainage systems and may also retain water needed for late-season crop production.
