Recirculating irrigation runoff water is a method of making more effective
use of irrigation water. Reuse of runoff water decreases the amount of
water that needs to be pumped or delivered and can be used to improve water
application efficiency. It also reduces the possibility of pollution of natural
streams from irrigated land. Other benefits are reduced surface drainage costs,
improved weed control and the saving of irrigation labor. Reuse systems are
readily adapted to automation and can be used advantageously in modern labor-saving,
automated and semi-automated irrigation systems.
