Agricultural growers can optimize their seasonal water use with a pressurized irrigation system. This type of irrigation improves conservation by preventing water loss due to seepage and evaporation. It also improves efficiency by providing water users with pressurized water, reducing labor and improving agricultural yields. Franson Civil Engineers has extensive experience working with clients who wish to move from flood irrigation to sprinkler irrigation.
Franson Civil assisted Scipio Irrigation Company in obtaining a $1 million WaterSMART grant and low interest loan. We then designed and managed construction of a concrete diversion structure to divert water into a new 3.7 mile 36-inch pipeline.View Project
