Drainage Engineering


WMS is experienced in all aspects of drainage engineering - we are landowners, farmers, and drainage district members as well as tile contractors and drainage engineers.


We provide reasonable solutions that solve drainage problems.  Our clients come to us from a variety of angles - some are intent on improving drainage in difficult topographies, others are working cooperatively with neighbors to improve area-wide drainage, and still others are simply trying to maintain their existing drainage in the face of development or disputes with adjoining land operators/landowners. 

Many drainage issues are very straightforward once the facts are known, and can be solved inexpensively and efficiently. 

Remember: You pay for the ditch or tile system whether you have it or not!
