Eugenio-Magano Farm 01 (Cadu, Ilagan) EcoCulture Projects : Canals and Local Irrigation System

For the ambitious "in place" Water Sequestration projects proposed for the Eugenio-Magano Farm 01 (Cadu, Ilagan), the canals (shown as dark blue in Figs. 01, 02 and 03) serve as the catchment basins (like streams and rivers) for the rainwater that falls into or directed to the farm. Not shown here are the smaller canals that together with the major canals create a Local Irrigation System to direct and distribute the collected rainwater throughout the farm.

Gravity automatically transports collecting rainwater from higher levels to the lower levels, eventually collected into water sequestration ponds (e.g., water sequestration ponds in zones c2 and d1 in Fig. 02). A mechanical pump will transport water from lower levels to higher levels (e.g., water sequestration ponds in zones b and c1 in Fig. 02).

Canals as emergency water sequestration areas. For the ambitious "in place" Water Sequestration projects proposed for the Eugenio-Magano Farm 01 (Cadu, Ilagan), the major canals (shown as dark blue in Figs. 01, 02 and 03) are as wide (at least one meter) and deep (at least one meter) as allowed by the area of the farm. The added volume from the major canals will serve as emergency rainwater sequestration areas, especially during heavy rains that accompany typhoons, as well as during the advent of La Niña.

 The Water Sequestration, Treatment, Recycling and Conservation projects are among the foundation projects of the EcoCulture System to create a biodiverse and sustainable food production system (see Fig. 0x for other proposed EcoCulture projects).
