Drainage coefficient is the most important parameter that decides the lateral drain spacing,
size of the laterals and collectors and capacity of the pump to dispose off the drainage efflu-
ent. The drain spacing is less in cases where drainage coefficient is more as compared to a
case where drainage coefficient is less. As such, the cost of the system depends largely upon
this parameter. Therefore, the need to select an appropriate value for this parameter has al-
ways been emphasized. The drainage coefficients for some of the sites in India have been ob-
served to be in the range of 1-5 mm
