A survey of systems for recirculating runoff water from irrigation
in southern Idaho shows little evidence of formal system design.
Systems were constructed to handle approximately 20 percent of the
volume of irrigation water. Costs of the systems vary with the type
of installation. Sequence, reservoir, and cycling sump systems each
has certain advantages. Recirculating systems are not effective unless
the water is applied to a different area than that which is contributing
runoff. Recirculating irrigation systems can raise water application
efficiencies to 80 percent.
