Originally written by Arthur F. Pillsbury & William R. Johnston from Department of Irrigation & Soil Science, University of California.

A four-year study of drainage effluent obtained from 15 tile drainage systems located in the arid San Joaquin Valley of California showed that the concentration of salts and the various ions discharged in the tile effluent decreased, logarithmically, from the time that the tile systems were installed.
