Irrigation-induced water quality problems. What can be Irrigation-induced water qualilty problems book from the San Joaquin Valley experience. Author(s): USA, Committee on Irrigation-Induced Water Quality Problems, National Research Council. Book: Irrigation-induced water quality problems.

Irrigation-Induced Water Quality Problems uses the San Joaquin experience to suggest how we can prepare for similar problems elsewhere. As one committee member put it, "There will be elsewheres"--trace elements and organic contaminants are being concentrated by irrigation in many river basins.

V PREFACE The Committee on Irrigation-Induced Water Quality Problems (Ap- pendix A) was formed in April to provide ongoing guidance to the San Joaquin Valley Drainage Program (SJVDP), the multiagency team formed to study irrigation in the San Joaquin Valley and search for ways to solve the problems caused by contaminated drainage water.

Located in the San Joaquin Valley (Valley) of California, the Kesterson Reservoir (Kesterson) was used to store agricultural drainage water and it was soon determined that the probable cause of the damage to wildlife was high concen­ trations of selenium, derived from the water and water.

IRRIGATION-INDUCED WATER QUALITY PROBLEMS addresses policy issues and the opportunities for national action. These are extrapolated from events in the San Joaquin Valley and outline actions that can be implemented by federal and/or state governments to minimize the negative impacts associated with irrigation.

The U.S. Department of the Interior has embarked on a series of reconnaissance‐level investigations throughout the western states to identify, evaluate, and respond to irrigation‐induced water quality problems.

A series of water, sediment, and biological samples are being analyzed Irrigation-induced water qualilty problems book 17 inorganic constituents and a number of pesticides.

Poor water management is the primary source of irrigation induced salinity. Although this is a technical problem, it is also the product of several other factors.

Poor government policies contribute to inefficient water use, and poor project planning and implementation lead to deterioration of infrastructures. 2 IRRIGATION-INDUCED WATER QUALITY PROBLEMS The toxic effects caused by selenium are only symptoms of the range of effects that can be caused by elevated salt concentrations.

The underlying issue is clear: irrigation, like many other uses of water, degrades water quality for later users. Irrigation-induced salinity seriously threatens the future of sustainable agriculture worldwide.

This paper examines the causes of salinity and its rapid increase in various countries. It discusses ways in which farmers, governments, and donor agencies can deal more effectively with the salinity crisis.

tion, water quality, and pollution abatement Irrigation induced soil erosion is a problem on specific soils in certain areas. Soil erosion can take the form of wind erosion when smooth and bare ground occurs between harvest and new crop growth periods.

Soil erosion by water. Salinity – The main problem related to irrigation water quality is the water salinity. Water salinity refers to the total amount of salts dissolved in the water but it does not indicate which salts are present in it.

High level of salts in the irrigation water reduces water availability to the crop (because of osmotic pressure) and causes.

Water quality problems, however, are often complex and a combination of problems may affect crop production more severely than a single problem in isolation.

The more complex the problem, the more difficult it is to formulate an economical management programme for solution. In the race to enhance agricultural productivity, irrigation will become more dependent on poorly characterized and virtually unmonitored sources of water.

Increased use of irrigation water has led to impaired water and soil quality in many areas. Historically, soil salinization and reduced crop productivity have been the primary focus of irrigation water by: 2.

Irrigation in arid regions always has an impact on water quality. Such irrigation always requires drainage. The need for drainage may be satisfied with or without man’s intervention. The drainage water, whether recharged to a groundwater body or discharged to some other water body, always has a higher salt concentration than the irrigation by: 3.
