Drain Tile didn't work!

Flooded Pasture Again!
Flooded Pasture Again!

Well, as you can see, the drain tile isn't sufficient to siphon away enough water with the heavy amounts that we have been getting.  Turns out that they are more designed to provide continuous irrigation than massive water movement!

Now we are back to the drawing board!  We need to finish paying for the equipment purchase so funds are still needed.  We also have to make a new plan.  I am open to suggestions.  Anybody?  Currently, we are contemplating creating rolling hills in the main pasture so that vast amounts of water do not sit stagnant to breed insects and disease.

Please respond with any suggestions that you have.  I am listening!

Thank you so much.
