Water Impounding and Irrigation

Last Sunday, December 01, our farm caretaker, Nong Endring Paragas, showed me his newly-repaired water impounding project to irrigate the rice field in front of my treehouse.

It's a combination of cement bags filled with sand and soil + rocks and stones + cogon. The sand in cement bags impound the water, the rocks and cogon support the bags from being pushed down by the water.

The impounded water goes through this small canal, also dug by Nong Endring many years ago.

Down here...

And irrigate his rice field, in front of my treehouse, seen from the 2nd floor.

Trees, treehouse and rice field.
