Cablegation semi-automated irrigation systems can
effectively apply water to borders and basins. A
buried pipeline conveys water to riser outlets on each
border. The system is designed hydraulically such that
controlled movement of a plug in the pipe distributes
water sequentially to consecutive borders. The outlets
operate hydraulically like weirs at heads below 80 mm.
Belled-ends on the outlets increases their capacity 75%
at low heads. Border cablegation design equations,
graphs and procedures are described.
