Seepage evaluations in Cache Valley irrigation canals
The Logan and the Blacksmith Fork irrigation systems in the Cache Valley, Utah, convey water distribution through earthen canals. Previous researchers and local water masters reported the existence of seepage problems in these canals, but there is very little knowledge of the amount of seepage, and of the spatial locations and temporal variation of these losses. The present study provides a better understanding of the seepage behavior within and between these canals throughout the irrigation area, as these canals pass through a varying landscape, including agricultural fields, steep slopes, ...
