Most lands of Khuzestan Province are suffering from salinity problems which lead to reduction in agricultural production. Therefore, to reclaim agricultural lands and to increase fertility, drainage systems must be installed. Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz Drainage Research Centre has been established to carry out applied research that result in cost-effective drainage systems. In July 2012, this center was granted temporary operation permit from Ministry of Science, Research and Technology of the Islamic Republic of Iran. After 5 years of research and practical activities works, the ministry issued the permanent operation permit for this research center in September 2018. The mission of this center continuously focuses on improving designs and technologies that can realize its objective. The Center can be considered a window through which modern technologies are introduced to the Iranian drainage practices after testing, and in many cases, after adaptation to suit the local conditions.
