Energy and Water Conservation Curriculum Development in Irrigation Technology for the Pacific Northwest. Final Report.
Peterson, James R.
This project was conducted to develop curriculum materials for classes in energy and water conservation for the Irrigation Technology Program at Walla Walla Community College. To develop the curriculum, the principal investigator read and analyzed materials on the subjects of water and energy conservation, participated in a short course on drip irrigation, contacted businesses in the West to discuss the practices used for water and energy conservation, and attended the 1984 International Irrigation Exposition and Conference. The final result was the development of two new three-quarter credit classes titled "Drip Irrigation" and "Water and Energy Conservation." It was found that there was a large demand from the irrigation industry for people with a background in energy and water conservation, so the classes were designed to supply those needs. In the future, sections of the classes will be used as short seminars. (Outlines of the two courses and a list of resources used are included as appendixes to this report.) (KC)
