This is the first day (May 12th 2021) for the installation of the Aquifer Pipe at Fresno State. We are placing the Aquifer Pipe at two depth, a three foot depth and a five foot depth.
Also taking out the soil base on soil compaction type and placing it back in the trench in the same order.
Everything is installed and now back filling. We place one PVC tube for a neutron moisture probe reader next to the Aquifer Pipe and will be installing another 100 tubes around the field to measure the moisture plume behavior.
The big objective is to reduce water loss to evaporation by delivering irrigated water subsurface.
This research will run till the end of 2021
