In others the springs and surface-flow only break out when the water table reaches the surface—during the winter or other times of particularly heavy rain.
When we have thus disposed of the water from the surface-flow, the shallow springs and the deep springs, and given vent to the water accumulated and ponded in the low places, we have then accomplished all that is peculiar to this kind of drainage.
The process of under-draining is a process of absorption and filtration, as distinguished from surface-flow and evaporation.
As a result, water has elevation, if only a foot or so, to surface-flow off of the playable areas into the native woods or the large waste bunkers.
