This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in earthworks.

Here is an example of building a drainage swale on a driveway. Swales or ditches on driveways are one of many features of a driveway that may need to be improved or maintained over time.

From the video description:
"Using a 1993 Ford 1520 tractor to dig a drainage swale on the side of a driveway to correct a drainage issue."

To get certified for this BB, post pictures or a video (2 minutes or shorter) that demonstrate the following:
  - road maintenance
  - eliminating potholes/puddles
  - eliminate washboards
  - restore crown if needed
  - eliminate ruts
  - make side ditches bigger if needed
  - add drain points if needed
  - at least 100 feet
  - seeds near road
