Pipeline and Canal Downstream Control System for Recirculation — Patterson ID Case Study
To eliminate spill and to provide better flexibility, a system was designed and constructed in Patterson Irrigation District (California) to tie the ends of five laterals together with pipes and pumps, with one central regulating reservoir. This paper describes the control philosophy, design, costs, challenges, and benefits of this SCADA-monitored downstream control system.
