DEF rubble drain: A drain constructed by filling a trench with rubble stones. Source

DEF French drain: A type of drain consisting of an excavated trench filled with pervious material such as coarse sand, gravel or crushed stone, through whose voids water percolates and exfiltrates into the soil. Source

DEF French drain: An underground passageway for water through the interstices among stones placed loosely in a trench. Source

DEF French drain: A drain made of rocks. Source

OBS Since rubble drains are usually not connected to a sewage system they are sometimes referred to as "blind drains." Source

OBS Note that for some authors the French drain may also be filled with other material than rocks (tile); and for some, those material may also be placed over a drain tile rather than being placed loosely in the trench. Source

DEF Conduit ou goulotte d'écoulement des eaux réalisé en pierres sèches. Source

OBS Le principe de la tranchée drainante et de la pierrée est le même; seul diffère leur mode de construction. D'après les sources consultées, en effet, la pierrée est constituée uniquement de pierres, alors que la tranchée drainante comporte divers matériaux de remplissage. Source

OBS Le terme «drain français», d'emploi relativement courant au Canada, ne semble pas connu ailleurs et est qualifié d'anglicisme par certains. Source

OBS Malgré ce que dit la source ROBER 1985, ne pas confondre avec «perré», en anglais «rip-rap» (voir fiche). Source

DEF A blind tile inlet that is constructed by backfilling the tile trench with various gradations of material. The course material is placed immediately over the tile, and the size is gradually decreased toward the surface. The surface should be kept in permanent vegetation to prevent sealing. Source

CONT Strip, tile and farm drains are typical ways of collecting run-off from large, flat areas where drainage occurs in a "sheet fashion". Strip drains are similar to catch basins in that they have a sump area to collect settlement and a removable grate for easy maintenance. Both tile and farm drains consist of small trenches covered with grass. Since the tile drain is connected to an underground drainage system, it provides better drainage that the farm drain; but neither system works when the ground is frozen.... Farm drains are used only in agricultural situations; it is very likely that they eventually will not drain properly due to becoming clogged with sedimentation. Source

OBS Farm drain (sometimes called French drain). Source

OBS Not to be confused with "blind drain" (see record). Source

DEF Tranchée de drainage dont le remblai est artificiel. Source

CONT Drainage sommaire. Les tranchées [...] drainantes. Elles sont installées dans les terrains perméables et permettent aux eaux recueillies d'être absorbées par le sol. Creusées, puis remplies de pierres sèches et de gravillons, elles sont très efficaces. Source

OBS Le principe de la tranchée drainante et de la pierrée est le même; seul diffère leur mode de construction. Selon les sources consultées, en effet, la pierrée est constituée uniquement de pierres, alors que la tranchée drainante comporte divers matériaux de remplissage (gravillons, par exemple). Source
