Enhanced irrigation distribution system
Our irrigation system was originally developed along a traditional flood irrigation model, with open channels flowing water by gravity. Recent changes to the water distribution system from one of open channels to one of pipes necessitated installation of pipes to our pila water stores. This project extends that network into our orchards and garden zones, facilitating the distribution of water more quickly and efficiently. This is particularly necessary towards the end of the dry season as water resources become more scarce. It allows for the expansion of cultivated areas within biosana and the safeguarding of existing orchards and growing zones.
