HomeBlogHow Do We Assess the Need for Irrigation Re-Routing?

Irrigation re-routing is the process of redirecting water distribution to maximize water utilization and ensure more efficient irrigation techniques. This can include changing the paths of irrigation canals, constructing new pipelines, or reconfiguring sprinkler or drip irrigation systems. Are you curious about how we determine whether irrigation re-routing is necessary? Keep reading to learn more.

How Do We Assess the Need for Irrigation Re-Routing?

  • Assessing the Current System: The first step is to properly inspect the existing irrigation system. This includes assessing water distribution efficiency, coverage, soil moisture levels, and any areas that are over- or under-watered.
  • Water Availability and Demand: We take into account the availability of water resources, as well as the demand for water. This includes determining seasonal fluctuations in water availability.
  • Mapping and Analysis: Using mapping technologies, we examine the current irrigation system’s structure and identify locations that could benefit from rerouting. This can help visualize water flow patterns, detect bottlenecks, and plan the best distribution routes.
  • Technological Solutions: We also look at any data that might exist. This information can provide real-time data on soil moisture levels, weather conditions, and more, allowing us to fine-tune irrigation schedules and identify spots where rerouting may be required.
  • Monitoring and Adjustment: Once irrigation re-routing is complete, we routinely evaluate the system’s performance and make any necessary modifications. This could include fine-tuning water delivery rates, improving irrigation schedules, and addressing any difficulties that develop.
