City of Notus Pressurized Irrigation Design
The City of Notus has an aging and inefficient irrigation system that doesn't meet the demands of the city. Using state of the art computer animated drawings and engineering, MAMA’S Engineering is designing a network of piping, through a pressurized system, to deliver irrigation water to all of the city's residents and take advantage of the designated amount of shares that the city has access to. In order to overcome the existing inefficient irrigation infrastructure, we are proposing to remove all gravity fed irrigation ditches and open channels and replacing with a fully pressurized system that will deliver water to all residents. This will ensure each resident has the required pressure for his/her needs. This design will require using multiple pump stations, but the cost of introducing a new system will be offset with each resident now receiving water and this will make Notus a more marketable area. Through this improvement, all residents will have a more reliable and effective means to ensure they maintain a high quality of life.
