Strarted irrigating out of a natural drainage ditch a couple years ago , have a culvert that sticks into ditch that feeds a well where a 150 hp turbine sits. in the ditch I have a spinning screen that keeps screen clean with spraying water. The problem Im having is that the pump is getting to much fine clay going thru it that is wearing out the impellers, need to build a settling pond I think to settle out the abrasive clay. just wondering if any one has any ideas on pond construction or pumping solutions? The irrigation company built a settling pond down stream last year to help get sand out of creek but I am still getting this silty build up thats wearing out pump.
