Water Resources and Irrigation Engineering Lectures & Notes for Civil Engineers
Water Resource Engineering is a specific kind of civil engineering that involves the design of new systems and equipment that help manage human water resources. Some of the areas Water Resource Engineers touch on are water treatment facilities, underground wells, and natural springs. Water Resources Engineering focuses on the use and management of land and water resources in rural and urban watersheds.
Irrigation is the controlled application of water to croplands. Its primary objective is to create an optimal soil moisture regime for maximizing crop production and quality while at the same time minimizing the environmental degradation inherent in irrigation of agricultural lands. OR Irrigation is the application of water to the soil to supplement natural precipitation and provide an environment that is optimum for crop production. Well Irrigated crops produce more food.
