Irrigation & Drainage

WEST engineers are experts in the development of irrigation canal hydraulic models, both steady and unsteady, allowing districts to document capacity constraints and their underlying causes. WEST’s flow measurement services help to improve an irrigation district’s water metering and accounting practices. WEST assists with the development of automatic control systems, including the automation of check gates, pumps, etc., and can provide training and guidance for operators.
