NEW! - Design: Drip Distribution (2 hrs)

Design, Install and O&M of Drip Distribution Systems
Overview - A drip dispersal system is a form of pressurized distribution that utilizes drip irrigation technologies to place effluent below the soil surface. This method is a best available technology to ensure uniform effluent application, especially in shallow soils where it is essential that the effluent comes into contact with the maximum volume of soil. This session will provide a brief introduction to drip dispersal and then provide detailed design guidance. We will review the operation of a drip dispersal system and discuss the hydraulic principles that must be addressed in the design. Finally, we will focus on system installation. There are many details that must accounted for in the installation in order for the system to provide satisfactory service for many years in to the future.

Learning Objectives - At the conclusion of this presentation, the participate will be able to:
  1. Describe the four operational stages of a drip dispersal system.
  2. Learn the hydraulic principles used to design a drip dispersal system.
  3. Select the pump, filter, and pipes needed to complete the drip dispersal system.
  4. Install a drip distribution system with confidence.
