"Irrigation and drainage has made a major contribution to facilitate increasing food production in order to meet the needs of an ever-growing world population. Irrigation, as the biggest water user in most regions of the world, is facing significant challenges in balancing social, economic and environmental needs for water. The water is basic source for all living in the world and it covers two third of the earth, it is the lifeblood of plants and its permanent or temporary shortage can cause serious damage to plants yield and quality. Irrigation has an important place in terms of water usage, its environmental impact and reuse of urban waste water. Irrigation; firstly begin with people becoming sedentary and agricultural practices, it has been made to improve the quality and quantity of crop production. In most countries agriculture represents by far the largest use of water and worldwide, it represents about 70% of total withdrawal and 90% of water consumption. Especially since the 1950s, people living in the cities started to be the owner of a garden, studies conducted in the urban landscape water is needed in these areas with different types of grass and ornamental crops, in order to ensure the sustainability of irrigation, which resulted in entering of irrigation into urban life. The sustainability of irrigation and drainage in the face of many variants and constraints like availability of water as a resource, ecological balance, socio-cultural impacts, and climate change effects lies in the strategies adopted and systems emplaced. Thus, sustainable irrigation and drainage management will be a frontier field in the future. This raises a number of questions; how can we increase the efficiency and productivity of water use under the circumstance of increasing uncertainties of flooding and drought? How can we reduce the nutrients output from agro-field by using irrigation and drainage technique, to reduce the pollution to groundwater and surface water? This volume Irrigation and Drainage Engineering aims to explore frontiers of knowledge in coining sustainable strategies and systems direly needed in managing the quality and quantity of water required for crop irrigation, surface and root zone drainage and flood management using available tools of research and development. The contribute chapters are written by well-known authors possessing various professional backgrounds and proficiency have dealt with these issues concerning the strategies and systems of irrigation and drainage. This book will be of invaluable for crop growers, agricultural engineers, water resource managers, academicians and graduate students alike."

Irrigation, as the biggest water user in most regions of the world is facing significant challenges in balancing social, economic and environmental needs for water. These proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Sustainable Irrigation and Drainage: Management, Technologies and Policies provide examples of how irrigation and drainage can become more sustainable, while acknowledging that the concept of sustainability is a goal that continues to change as our knowledge of the biophysical realities alters. In that sense moving towards sustainability is an ever evolving journey. A focus is made on the implications for improving sustainability, whether this is drainage, irrigation technologies, economic modelling, governance studies for irrigation management, reuse of water or any other aspect. Topics covered include: Irrigation management; Irrigation modelling; Irrigation systems and planning; Economic incentives; Groundwater issues; Water contamination and remediation; Drainage systems; Drainage modelling; International issues; Water reuse; Climate change effects; Water trade; Economics of irrigation; Socio-economic benefits.

Prepared by the Task Committee on Pipelines for Water Conveyance and Drainage of the Irrigation Delivery and Drainage Systems Committee of the Irrigation and Drainage Council of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Pipelines for Water Conveyance and Drainage offers a concise listing and description of 11 types of pipe commonly used for water conveyance and drainage. For each type of pipe, 20 characteristics are described, including such physical attributes as material, available sizes, standard lengths, protective linings and coatings, joints, and fittings. Performance characteristics include allowable internal pressure, external load capabilities, hydraulic resistance factor, wave speed, allowable leakage rates, and water quality tolerances. Installation and maintenance criteria include specifications; tapping methods; repair methods; installation, backfill, and protective requirements; and useful life. Information about common standards, industry groups, and reference publications is also included. This Manual of Practice (MOP) pertains to the following types of pipe: concrete, welded steel, ductile iron, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pressure, polyethylene profile wall, PVC and polypropylene profile wall, corrugated polyethylene, fiberglass, corrugated metal, and vitrified clay pipe and clay drain tile. Design engineers, utility managers, planners, and educators will find MOP 125 to be an essential reference for designing, installing, and maintaining pipelines that convey water and drainage.
