DESCRIPTION

This book provides sensible guidelines and procedures for improved maintenance and operations of conveyance and distribution systems for irrigation water. The maintenance and operations phases of irrigation system management are discussed separately and in detail, with many photographs, sketches, flow charts, and computational examples to support the application of concepts.

The Irrigation Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Learning Process has two major phases: the Maintenance Phase and the Operations Phase. Although both phases are discussed, the initial emphasis is on implementing improved irrigation system maintenance practices, particularly for deteriorated irrigation systems. In terms of strategy, this process focuses very strongly on providing equitable water supplies to outlets or turnouts (synonymous terms), and enhancing communication between irrigation agency staff and water users. Besides describing the Learning Process, this text focuses on how both phases lead to improved hydraulic performance.

The Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Learning Process has been developed to provide guidelines that will help identify problems, develop solutions, and provide field experience and insights for further improvements to the irrigation system. This process is meant to develop appreciation and create awareness among technical staff of the irrigation agency, as well as farmers and senior officials, by creating "visible success stories" at those irrigation systems selected for improvement.
