Abstract: Pipelines are extensively used to upgrade irrigation delivery facilities. The advantages of a pipeline system include an improvement in water conservation and the ability to extend water deliveries to lands that could not otherwise be irrigated. The parameters involved in designing a pipeline system are many and include land use, terrain, irrigation requirements, energy costs and water supply. Once these design parameters have been identified, the type of pipe material and the proper pipe size must be determined. There are various pipe materials available to the engineer and this selection is an important decision. After determining the pipe type and size, the engineer must select the appropriate appurtenances such as air valves, surge valves, sectionalizing valves, meters and fittings.
