Tile Drainage System

Parks Canada is responsible for overseeing the management and maintenance of tenanted properties within Rouge National Urban Park. The purpose of this project is to install a new modern tile drainage system in active agricultural fields, to improve field conditions for farming. In addition to improving drainage to increase workability of the land and crop production, this tile drainage will help prevent soil erosion and improve water quality in the Little Rouge Creek watershed. The installation of these systems includes the excavation of linear trenches across the fields for placement of the piping, as well as excavation of areas where pipelines connect and of system outlets. Once installed the systems are subject to ongoing maintenance and improvement. This work may include the placement of additional drainage lines and re-excavation of existing components to repair broken elements or improve performance.
