Abstract
Irrigation return flows in the Grand Valley of Western Colorado contribute to the serious salinity problems in the Colorado River Basin by carrying large salt loads resulting from contact with local saline soils and aquifers. Since the valley is one of the more significant salt sources, it is therefore a logical area for evaluation of the effectiveness of various salinity control measures. The study has emphasized two on-farm control alternatives, namely, irrigation scheduling and field drainage. The contents of the report consider the latter measure. Three farms were extensively studied during the 1972 and 1973 irrigation seasons to identify drainage needs and the effect field relief drainage would have on reducing salinity in the return flows.
