Long-term Consequences of Recycling Drainage Water for Irrigation
Several long.term field studies (i.e. 6 yrs or more) conducted by the USDA/ARS and the University of California have demonstrated that saline drainage water (ECw...

Multiobjective Optimization of Multireservoir System
In the present study, a detailed multiobjective nonlinear programming model is formulated and applied to a multireservoir system at upper reaches of Krishna river basin in Karnataka State,...

Emerging Concepts for Management of Salinity and Drainage in Irrigated Regions
The purpose of this paper is to very briefly highlight some physical and design concepts important to management of salinity and drainage in irrigated regions in an environmentally sensitive...

Shallow Ground Water Management with a Modified Subsurface Drainage System
An existing subsurface drainage system was modified to control the flow from the drain laterals and to control the water table depth on a portion of the field. Tomatoes and cotton have...

Efficiencies of Drainage Systems and Improved Water Management
Drainage of agricultural lands has become a contentious issue as concern increases over the actual economic benefits of subsurface drainage in irrigated regions relative to the impacts...

Vulnerability of Water Resources to Global Climate Change in the Agricultural Midwest- Ecological, Economic, and Regulatory Aspects
As climate changes, so will water resources. General climate change will alter the distribution of hydrometeorological events and will affect water use, in turn resulting in further alterations...

Effects of Sewage Effluent Irrigation on Paddy
Paddy, the staple food of South India, occupies about an area of 38 million hectares in India [1, 1987]. Being a semi-aquatic plant, its water requirements are many times more than most...

Canal Control and Automation for the Central District System
The Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District system provides irrigation and hydropower benefits in south-central Nebraska. Because of its complexity, the system relies heavily...

Portable Flumes with Adjustable Throats
Vertically adjustable flumes for canal flow measurements address several problems in field practice. One involves the perception by some canal water users that flumes and weirs always...

Conjunctive Water Use Transforms a California Desert
An area doing multi-billion dollar recreational and agricultural business in the Southern California Sonoran desert owes its existence and well being to two things—wise water planning...

A DEM Based Hydrologic and Sediment Transport Model
A DEM-based, physically-distributed model was developed for simulating event runoff and erosion on an agricultural watershed. Runoff was described using the diffusion equation with flow...

Changes in Ground Water—Surface Water Interaction in the Santa Ana River Caused by Independent Water Resources Management Activities
For the past 18 years, ground water artificially-stored in the Chino Basin, has been managed as a zero-interest bank account. Recent water resources management studies show that losses...

The Management Improvement Program: A Model to Improve the Performance of Irrigated Agriculture
In 1991, the USDA-Agricultural Research Service U. S. Water Conservation Laboratory (USWCL) and a coalition of federal, state, and county agencies initiated a project to develop and test...

Current Status of the Demonstration Management Improvement Program
Coordinated resource management programs have been developed and implemented in the Maricopa-Stanfleld Irrigation and Drainage District (MSIDD) area as a result of the Management Improvement...

The Management Improvement Program: An Irrigation District's Perspective of the Demonstration Program
In November 1990, the Maricopa-Stanfield Irrigation and Drainage District agreed to participate in the first application of the Management Improvement Program (MIP) for irrigated agriculture....

Integrated Resources Management for Irrigated Agriculture: Practical Lessons in Water Management and Conservation from the Arizona Management Improvement Program
In Arizona, the interagency Management Improvement Program (MIP) is an effective water resources planning method where a large number of people and several levels of agencies or government...

Interruptible Option Contracts
Interruptible option contracts have been proposed and studied in numerous parts of the Western United States as an alternative supply option for water systems in an economically higher...

Developing a Rating Table for the Central Diversion Dam Radial Gates
The Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District uses radial gates for flow control throughout its system. The rating tables for five radial gates on a diversion dam are in error,...

Getting Wet with Metric
Conversion from what is now the American system of units to the SI system of units is a dry subject at best. In the water resources area, however, a rather complete immersion is going...

Irrigation of Grain Sorghum on the Delmarva Peninsula
Irrigated grain sorghum experiments were conducted for two years on a Norfolk sandy loam soil. Full irrigation was compared to partial irrigation and no irrigation in a randomized block...
