Berm – a ridge of dirt that holds water in on irrigated property.
CFS (cubic feet per second) – the measure of how much water is flowing past a certain point in one second.
Redhead – the valve that screws open and closed to control the flow of irrigation in your yard.
Acre-foot – the amount of water required to cover one acre to a depth of one foot. An acre-foot equals 325,851 gallons, or 43,560 cubic feet. A flow of one cubic feet per second produces 1.98 acre-feet per day.
- Keep animals, vehicles and other precious items out of harm’s way.
- Check all berms to ensure you won’t lose any water.
- Laser level property to ensure proper water coverage.
- Mow lawn to allow even flow of water.
- Remove debris from pasture/yard to assist with water flow.
- Don’t order more water than berms can hold.
