Iron Ochre


August 1, 2023 - Author: <ghane@msu.edu>,

Iron ochre can cause clogging of the subsurface (tile) drainage system. The clogging can occur in the pipe perforations, valleys of corrugations, or inside of the pipe. Clogging from iron ochre can lead to under-performance or failure of the subsurface drainage system. This bulletin describes the iron ochre issue and its mitigation methods.
