This invention relates to an automatic irrigation gate. More particularly,
it relates to a self operating mechanical check gate for controlling
irrigation in a farm head ditch or lateral.

Accordingly, one object of this invention is to provide means for
automatically opening a gate in an irrigation ditch. Another object is to
provide means for so opening the gate at a predetermined time. Still
another object is to provide means for automatically reclosing the gate
and resetting the release mechanism when the water has run out of the
ditch. These and other objects that will be obvious to those skilled in the
art are achieved by means of the invention described below.
