209-Green Irrigation Fundamentals - Balancing Aquifer Recharge and Withdrawal

This "Green Irrigation Fundamentals — Balancing Aquifer Recharge and Withdrawal" is an introduction to an irrigation water demand calculation methodology, which is presented specifically for Florida, USA, but the methodology is applicable to anywhere in the world where similar water management challenges exist and where conservation of water resources is important.

This methodology is presented to allow for a systematic approach to evaluate and determine the optimum irrigation water demand for a particular house, a residential development or commercial development or any other project where impervious surfaces are created and the land use is changed to reduce evapotranspiration water losses.

The approach is relatively simple: if the amount of irrigation water used is equal to the amount of additional water created by the improvements to recharge the aquifer, then the net effect is zero (no impact).

The primary objective of this short course is to introduce a methodology that can be used by individual home owners, developers, engineers, planners, regulators and any other water managers who are interested in the conservation of water and a systematic application of water use restrictions based on scientific principles.

I think the technique is useful but may be optimistic. It may be optimistic to consider all of the runoff from developed impervious areas (roof tops, pavements, etc.) to infiltrate even in the closed basin scenario. E and ET may be non-zero to the point of becoming significant for runoff from the developed impervious areas depending on how long infiltration takes.
