Irrigation with Surface and Subterranean Water; and Land Drainage

    Abstract

    THE author of this book has been engaged for many years in Australia in water supply and irrigation works. There are vast areas of land in that country the soil of which is of the highest fertility but barren and comparatively useless because of periodical aridity. The problem of irrigation of the land from the rivers and creeks that flow at times through these districts, and form inexhaustible accumulations of underground water, is treated fully and practically according to the latest and most approved methods.
