We noticed at the end of the field was where the drainage system was located. This was where all the water runoff collects and is pumped back up to the top to be re-used. We then continued to walk by the furrow example section where about eight or ten rows of furrows were set up. We then look at the open channel flow canal that was made out of concrete. We were informed that Manning’s equation is used for open channel flow to find the Manning’s coefficient for the roughness of various shapes of ditches or canals. In addition, pressure measurements are in feet for open channel flow because it is a more practical unit. The next stop at the first site was the pump area where all of the water in the various systems came from. We examined the pump control valve on the system, which is a valve that
