Hi Jack,

Is there anyway to delay return flows?

Thanks,

Alyssa

Hi Alyssa,

Return links themselves do not have any delay in returning water to their destinations. However, the Soil Moisture Catchment Method buffers and delays flows (from precipitation and irrigation) to surface and groundwater. Also, if you return water to groundwater, three different methods can buffer and delay the groundwater flow into surface water. See: http://www.weap21.org/WebHelp/index.html#Using_the_Purkey_Wedge_Method.htm
