Submerged drains in the shape of fixed tube drainage level out the groundwater on peaty soil; the groundwater level is levelled up during the six summer months and levelled down in the six winter months. The level of the ditchwater, however, is crucial here. Submerged drains make it possible, by a little level increase, to reduce peat subsidence, without harming the agricultural use of the grassland
