RESEARCH ON THE FEASIBILITY OF TECHNICAL – INVESTITION SOLUTIONS OF DRAINAGE SYSTEM RECONSTRUCTION
From the technical and agro-technical point of view, the reclaimed land of poor condition covers 222.4 thousand ha. More than 15.0 thousand ha of drained agricultural land turned into a swamp, more than 67.3 thousand ha overgrew with bushes and forest. The average depreciation of buildings reached 59.1 percent. When drainage structures are worn down, there is a need to overhaul or, in many cases, to reconstruct them.
The economic situation in the country and farming agricultural conditions change, therefore it is appropriate to assess drainage systems from the economic viability and payback time of the projects viewpoints, using a variety of partial drainage and surface water drainage ways, depending on land use. Drainage sys-tems should be reconstructed in areas, which are used in agricultural production, therefore agricultural output prices, state and EU subsidies as well as profits per unit of area are key indicators that determine economic viability of the drainage system reconstruction project.
Drainage system reconstruction clients are municipalities, land reclamation business associations and, in rare cases, farmers or other individuals, their goal - to get the maximum profit at the lowest possible cost. Considering the expected activ-ity, simple solutions are often enough, therefore, the reconstruction of drainage systems should be designed allowing a wider choice of cost-effective technical solutions.
Research objective - to investigate technical options for the reconstruction of drainage systems allowing achievement of the expected economic benefits of the project.
