Cut Fill Map
The Cut/Fill map shows that although 80% of the field drains naturally, there are areas where significant ponding can occur. The aerial photographs (see this field in Google Maps) shows these areas are generally around a meandering natural drainage line. With minimal earthworks OptiSurface landforming corrected this problems and promoted the signficant benefits that come with optimal surface drainage.
