Abstract/Artist Statement

The Woods Irrigation Company is a non-profit cooperative of local farmers, which serves irrigation water to the middle division of Roberts Island in San Joaquin County, California. The 2007 enactment of Assembly Bill (AB) No. 1404 Ch. 265 requires that an agricultural water supplier shall submit an annual report to the department that summarizes aggregated farm-gate delivery data, on a monthly or bimonthly basis, using best professional practices. Woods Irrigation Company is required to comply with AB No. 1404. The goal of this engineering senior project is to provide recommendations for improvements to the irrigation delivery system, which includes channel design, turnout design, flow meter implementation, and a pump structure design with the purpose of increasing the efficiency of water delivery and reduce costs associated with pumping. The project also entails fieldwork, crop evapotranspiration calculations, and an assessment of project environmental impacts. Final project deliverables will include a technical report with standard plans for all design components.
