Drainage/Irrigation design and execution of Ain Adari Park
....................................................................................................................................................


     In 2006 the 165,000 square meters, of existing palm planation farms were remodeled and
     Ain Adhari national park was created.
     Adhari Park is an amusement park, located around the Zinj area, in the Kingdom of Bahrain
     based around the historic freshwater spring known as Ain Adari.

     Since that water source for the irrigation was fresh water; the irrigation system had
     to be extremely precise, making sure that no water was wasted, as a result, a
     central control system was installed linked to an onsite weather station, flow sensors were
     used to detect any leaks in the system and the heads were mostly composed of drippers.
     Subsurface irrigation for grass and on line pressure regulating anti-leak and
     plant specific drippers were used for the landscape.

     Even though annual precipitation is low in the Kingdome of Bahrain, the winter
     rains tend to fall in brief, torrential downpours, flooding the island. For this; the
     site grading was designed and adjusted, forcing storm water do drain into the drainage
     channels that were designed and built all along the Hardscape.
