Irrigation System

Last modified by Aaron Bugaj on 2017/05/16 12:41

Each hill slope was designed with five (5) irrigation circuits. Each hill slope is fed via a supply line which can be charged using any of the pumps (valving restrictions apply)

Irrigation circuits

Circuit A (MP2000)
 - This circuit utilizes six (8) Hunter MP2000 heads providing approximately 0.32 cm/hr of rain

Circuit B (Intermediate)
 - This circuit utilizes eight (6) Hunter MP2000 heads providing approximately 0.31 cm/hr of rain

Circuit C (MP3000)
 - This circuit utilizes eight (8) Hunter MP3000 heads providing approximately 0.74 cm/hr of rain

Circuit D (Multi1)
 - This circuit utilizes fourteen (14) Hunter MP2000 heads and fourteen (8) Hunter MP3000 heads providing approximately 1.37 cm/hr of rain

Circuit E (Multi2)
 - This circuit utilizes fourteen (14) Hunter MP2000 heads and fourteen (8) Hunter MP3000 heads providing approximately 1.37 cm/hr of rain

*** Please note ***
 Circuit D and E are designed to be identical and each is equivalent to the combination of A + B + C.

Irrigation Control

Each of the five irrigation circuits is operated by a VALWORX electric ball valve. These valves can be opened and closed manually or by computer control. The device cRIO-LEO-Irrigation (located in the irrigation electrical control panel) is configured as a task scheduler which provides the ability to precisely automate complex valve action scenarios. More information regarding this topic can be found in the page IRRIGATION CONTROL

Water storage

 There are 7 tank in the east bay - each tank can hold approximately 8,037 Liters.
 There are 4 tank in the west bay - each tank can hold approximately 9,690 liters.
 The RO can produce approximately 75 liters per minute.
