original irrigation system for the Grangeville Country Club Golf Course
was designed in 1961 and it's useful design life is over. The current
system no longer provides adequate amounts or placement of water. Often
late summer temperatures and lack of precipitation lead to the drying
of the turf causing brown spots which are unbecoming aesthetically as
well as dangerous for turf maintenance.
goal is to produce working plans for a state of the art irrigation
system for the Grangeville Country Club Golf Course Board of Directors,
which can be submitted for federal grant consideration as well as used
in the construction of the new system. The final design will include
the following; evapotranspiration analysis, water and storage
requirements, pipe and pump sizing, pipe placement, pumphouse design,
fluid calculations, and analysis of new control technologies that could
potentially reduce construction and management costs.
