Irrigation Engineering

Excerpt from Irrigation Engineering The first edition of Irrigation Engineering, was a pioneer in its field, and quickly took its place as the recognized standard therein, as indicated by its passage through six successive editions. At the date of the first edition and in fact, some time later, the large irrigation works of engineering interest were mostly in India and Egypt. Mr. Wilson's familiarity with those works, based largely on personal contact with them and their builders and operators, gave the early editions of his work a special value as contributions to western knowledge of this subject. The subsequent activity in irrigation in other parts of the world, especially in the United States, together with similar developments in related lines of municipal water supply and hydro-electric construction, have presented new problems and evolved new solutions of old ones to such an extent that what might almost be called a new science has been developed, requiring different treatment. Moreover, social, political and economic conditions in America are radically different from those in the Orient, and this imposes very different conditions and limitations upon the practice of irrigation engineering. Sir William Willcocks, on his visit to America, said he was accustomed to look upon the irrigation industry as one absolutely dependent upon cheap labor like that of Asia and Africa, and that his chief interest in examining American irrigation was to learn how it was that irrigation could be practiced at all in America. American irrigation practice therefore is very different from that of India, and has been largely developed quite recently.
