      Project Methods The primary methodology for this research uses systematic interviewing and document collection to construct a detailed case study. This effort is examining the social and political dynamics by which the water community in the Arkansas Valley River Basin assessed the State of Colorado pilot water bank and then proceeded to establish an alternative collective goods organization. Catherine’s book, Tule Technology, shows how tules/bulrushes were used widely in the Great Basin until very recent times for a multitude of purposes. In the Great Basin there are hundreds of springs and marshes, and even more in earlier days before the settlers altered the waterways for agriculture.

The empiracle linear programming model developed to represent the agricultural economy of the Sevier River Basin was able to provide reasonable replication of cropping patterns, wate ruse, and instream flows in the basin. This success generates some confidence in the model's ability to estimate the effects of adaptations of new irrigation technologyCited by: 1.

A linear programing model was developed to determine to evaluate the effect of changes in irrigation technology on consumptive use and return flows for downstream users within the Sevier River Basin. The model was constructed in two by: 1. The economic well-being of the semi-arid intermountain area requires efficient use of available water supplies.

A river salinity model has been developed on the 21 major canal areas in the lower Arkansas River Basin in Colorado to address the impact of irrigation return flow on the river.

effects of pumping for irrigation on the water supply in the St. Joseph River basin. The geologic and hydrologic characteristics of the basin, as well as the distribution of irrigation, are presented.

Texas High Plains (Segarra and Feng, ). The Sevier River basin has 65 reservoirs and lakes that are used for surface-water management, with four reservoirs on the main river.

Additional sites for new reservoirs have been investigated, two on the main river. The basin is short on water relative to demand by about million m 3 annually.

The Sevier River Basin is composed of five regions. This website, sponsored by the Sevier River Water Users Association in central Utah, is dedicated to the proposition that better, more timely information leads to better water management. Effective November 5, the area is subject to the conditions of the Sevier River Basin Groundwater Policy.

The policy was created to address issues raised after study of the basin hydrology and management alternatives. The major issue discussed was the close hydrologic connection between the surface water and ground water. GENERAL. The study area is the Sevier River Basin located in south-central Utah ().It encompasses an area of approximat km 2 that account for % of Utah’s area.

The basin has high ET and low precipitation, and is characterized by snowmelt-driven streamflow Cited by: 4. Soil in the Congo River Basin is not fertile due to the over-irrigation from the river. This creates unstable land, like quicksand with a water to earth ratio of about 10 to 3.

To simulate the effects of conversion from flood to sprinkler irrigation, recharge from irrigated fields was reduced by 50 percent. After twenty years, this reduction resulted in water-level declines of 1 to 8 feet in most of the basin, and a reduction in ground-water discharge to the Sevier River Author: P.M.

Lambert, J.L. Mason, R.W Puchta. Irrigation is the application of controlled amounts of water to plants at needed intervals. Irrigation helps to grow agricultural crops, maintain landscapes, and revegetate disturbed soils in dry areas and during periods of less than average rainfall.

Irrigation also has other uses in crop production, including frost protection, suppressing weed growth in grain fields and preventing soil. Irrigation provides the lifeblood of farming in Utah’s Sevier River basin, but, as in much of the west, there isn’t enough water.

To improve their lot, farmers will have to find ways to stretch this scarce resource. A project launched by the U.S. Interior Department’s Bureau of Reclamation is showing how the.
