Transcript

  • 1. Where does our irrigation water come from, our challenges, and what is next for MVCC?
    Presentation from Maintenance
  • 2. Golf Course Water Sources
    Ground water– there is a well located between 13/14 that provides irrigation water to the main irrigation lake.
  • 3. Golf Course Water Sources
    Groundwater
    there is a well located between 13/14 that provides irrigation water to the main irrigation lake.
    Coachella Valley Canal Water
    Water is piped underground into the main irrigation lake behind 18 green at base of waterfall.
  • 4. Irrigation with Well Water
    Ability to supply ground water to irrigation lakes at 2200 gpm when operating.
    We have a 150 hp motor
  • 5. Irrigation with Well Water
  • 6. Irrigation with Well Water
  • 7. Irrigation with Well Water
  • 8. Challenges with Well Water for Irrigation
    The clean ground water from the aquifer is the main water supply for human consumption for valley residents.
    Table from CVWD
  • 9. Challenges with Well Water for Irrigation
    The high quality clean water for human consumption is limited.
  • 10. Challenges with Well Water
    The high quality clean water for human consumption is limited.
    Aquifer is currently overdrawn. Current and future restrictions.
  • 11. Challenges with Well Water
    The high quality clean water for human consumption is limited.
    Aquifer is currently overdrawn. Current and future restrictions.
    Solution : Use Canal Water
  • 12. Canal Water
    The Coachella Valley Canal is a 122 mile network of aqueducts supplying Colorado River water to meet the valleys agriculture needs.
  • 13. Canal Water
    The Coachella Valley Canal is a 122 mile network of aqueducts supplying Colorado River water to meet the valleys agriculture needs.
    Supplies approximately 1300 cubic feet per second.
    Capacity is approximately 300 billion gallons annually
  • 14. Canal Water Challenges
    Water Quality- brown water from runoff
  • 15. Canal Water Challenges
    Water quality – living organisms
  • 16. Canal Water Challenges
    CVWD supply issues
    High water or low water
  • 17. Future of Our Water
    CVWD supplements the aquifer with water diverted from the Colorado River, collected storm runoff and treated wastewater.
  • 18. Future of Our Water
    CVWD supplements the aquifer with water diverted from the Colorado River, collected storm runoff and treated wastewater.
    CVWD has a goal of withdrawing and recharging the aquifer at an equal rate.
  • 19. Future of Our Water
    CVWD supplements the aquifer with water diverted from the Colorado River, collected storm runoff and treated wastewater.
    CVWD has a goal of withdrawing and recharging the aquifer at an equal rate.
    As a part of the CVWD water management plan – within 20 years outdoor irrigation will be completed with recycled water.
  • 20. Future of Our Water - Conservation
    What are we doing?
    Irrigating based on turf requirements
    Water turf, not parking lots
    Drip irrigation where applicable
