Irrigation Ditch and Canal Modernization

Aqua Engineering is actively involved in furthering and implementing innovative and affordable technologies for irrigation districts and mutual irrigation companies. Irrigated agriculture in the West is under increasing pressure as changing water demands, urbanization, endangered species, water quality and other challenges continue to mount. More than ever, irrigation districts, municipalities, and irrigation companies’ efforts to adapt to these challenges are benefitting from expert guidance in water conservation and accounting, targeted infrastructure improvement, and improving operating efficiencies. Aqua Engineering benefits our clients through our experience in the following services:
  • Service area inventory and assessment 
  • Feasibility studies and grant writing 
  • Canal modernization projects (automation, pressurization, SCADA) 
  • Design of new and rehabilitated hydraulic structures 
  • On-farm irrigation improvements 
  • Drought response plans 
  • Water rights services 
A key value-added service is institutional planning. Aqua Engineering recognizes that change can bring opportunity and has worked with our clients to adapt their institutions to implement secondary supply, water delivery contracts, rotational fallowing, aquifer recharge, and other mechanisms. These alternatives blend with traditional agricultural irrigation practices to afford companies opportunities to increase and diversify their revenue streams and increase the overall resiliency of irrigated agriculture under their systems.
