Reuse of Agriculture Drainage Water in a Mixed Land-Use Watershed
AbstractWater demand in Korea has triggered the need for fresh water to be used for agriculture. Agricultural drainage water (ADW) is a way of coping with the growing demand for fresh water for agriculture. In this study, a water quality model (WQM), and an algorithm were used in order to determine the water quality and optimize the water reuse quantity in the Osan stream drain, South Korea. The water quality associated with the drain was stimulated using the QUAL2Kw model and the uncertainty analysis and sensitivity analysis with the use of Monte Carlos Simulation was performed to determine the performance of the WQM. Jaya algorithm technology was used as an optimization tool to find optimal ADW reuse quantities at particular withdrawal points. For calibration and validation, the model was applied twice for both summer and winter seasons. The results show that the reuse quantities represent 77.2% and 49.8% of the available ADW in the study area for summer and winter, respectively, representing 49.1% and 54.5% of seasonal canal delivery. The utilization of the simulation-optimization model is usually well suited for decision support leading to near-optimum reuse assortment of ADW for irrigation. View Full-Text
