Pumping stream water for drip irrigation is kind of pointless, because of the clogging you are already aware of.

Looking for design and solutions for stream pick up and watering sloped lot

I have a property the used to use a stream for irrigation. the old owners desided to stop using the stream as the pump kept getting clogged.



The stream is normally about 1 -2 ft deep (49 ft above sealevel) but can raise to the bottom of our bridge (63 ft above sea level)

Our property is approx 2.5 acres and parts are heavily sloped. The highest eleivation is 163 ft above sea level.



We have fruit trees and many other various plants, but the slopes are mostly native plants (aka weeds). We want to put some type of plants on the slope that are nice, can retain the soil etc and need to water them.



I do want to use the stream again.



How would the best setup be with the fewest issues?



I would like to also use drip for alot of the plants, but am afraid of clogging issues.



Thanks

Bruce
