Speaking to over 400 attending the Henry Luebcke Wapakoneta Ohio drainage engineerformerly asso ciated with the Soil Conservation Service outlined problems in volved in the construction of the famous Ohio Turnpike and said the drainage criteria and policies on that project produced highly satis factory results Luebcke developed the plan for the design and installation of all surface and subsurface drainage on both the Ohio and Pennsylvania Turnpikes Proper Drains He said super highways and wide tend to cut old drainage systems and practically make it impossible for new sys tems to develop unless provisions are made at the time of construc tion on these highways for proper drains The nations increasing popula tion industrial and suburban de velopments and the increase in the number of miles traveled by each car or truck has overloaded our highway he said When the Ohio Turnpike was constructed he said a roadbed with the alignment and grades for the comfort safety and conven ience of

pro vided for the future development of agricultural drainage and local flood control systems in accord ance with the capability and use of the lands they served Surface Water As a matter of suggestion in the event of super highway construc tion in Iowa Luebcke said that on the Ohio project the ends of all tiles were intercepted by trench ing and roadside or outlet ditches which were not to be abandoned were plugged to prevent debris or surface water from entering Dry borrow pits were restored by grading fertilizing and seed ing them to adapted pasture grasses or by returning
