Drainage channels are artificial multi-functional elements in a landscape, which have their own specific functions. Although they are primarily used for the drainage of water, they can also even be used for an opposite function, i.e. the artificial water supply of specific regions. This article presents an evaluation of infiltration experiments in drainage channels in the southeastern part of Slovakia. These experiments served for the collection of input data for numerical modeling, especially the determination of the soil type and hydraulic conductivity. The methodology of experimental works in the field as well as some basic information about their evaluation is included.
