Concrete pipe installation

Flown by John Scott, Digital Agriculture Coordinator, Purdue Extension

A subsurface concrete drain pipe was installed in 2019 to provide an outlet from a new retention pond to a nearby creek. The pipe was installed diagonally through the cover-crop plots and will impact soil characteristics for several years. The UAV data will determine the affected 2.3-acre area and document the damage for future uses.
