Pump location

I am pumping out of a river and redoing the whole irrigation system. The existing pump is about 25% of the way down a 16 foot steep drop to the river, in other words, about 4 feet from the top and 12 feet to the water. I have heard that it is better for a pump to be pushing water than pulling it. Since I am basically starting over, would it be better to relocate the 2 hp pump further down the hill?

I always try to put the pump as close the water as I can, but that depends on power and terrain.
