Where does our water come from

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