Colorado State HWY 82

One of the unique elements of the system designed for this highway is the use of hauled water and solar powered pumps for the drip irrigation system. Water that is hauled to the higher areas of a revegetation site is delivered to the planting site using the solar powered pumps to pressurize the drip irrigation system.

A second innovation was the use of bridge crossings to carry pipes transporting water. One of the materials specified by Aqua Engineering for parts of the bridge crossing system is a durable, flexible pipe. Also recommended for use on the projects higher slopes, the pipe can be salvaged and re-used as the project moves down its fifty-mile stretch.
