Under Field Cistern

Currently the agricultural systems are having flood problems. To deal with the water flood problem a low cost method of production to correct the condition by using a rigid plastic that is a water porous cube of variable height, and of sufficient strength, to support earth cover and farm equipment atop the formed cistern. The total system will then allow for the farmer to prevent crop damage due to flooding.

The cubes then placed in multitude to act as a cistern or artificial water well. The system then having the capacity to clean itself out by water steam injection.  The design then using algae derived plastic to keep production cost low in tandem with fuel less high density high voltage generators to produce the objects. The laminate lap plates then interlocking to assist in prevention of water penatration from the top as the water intake is filtered to reduce silt fill within the cubes. The lock pins also then of plastic composite material.

The cubes of plastic then formed in continual process by linear plastic  "printing" to then pattern cavitation between the layers until required height is attained for the application. The porous  "cube" then produced in continual process like an assembly line so that at the end of the  "run" the cube is at it's final height. The base  "start" form is then produced by injection molding. The "lap panel" then ties the "cubes" together and is a laminate of fiber

reinforced plastic (possibly hemp derived) embedded in plastic. The algae bio-plastic can be made non- biodegradable.


The side panels then also of laminate plastic with a slight interference fit. The side panels may be made to be water tight. The cubes may  "stack in strata layer" producing a "tier" cistern system.  The formation process may also produce the porous material at greater length to quicken the speed of installation. The "open sides of the "cubes" then receive connector component to "lock" the adjacent cubes together while retaining water. This causes the size of the connected "cubes" to become a large under ground water holding tank.

The on site delivery ( length of a semi truck trailer at 4' high ) the system to "produce" the product then may be a mobile  "on-site" production mechanism to then directly install the cistern. The  "on-site" system then contained within semi truck trailers  equipped with ventilation ( H.V.A.C. ) and fire detection and fire suppression. The trailers then with multiple exits for safety.

The design system motive power from

The fuel less pump system then with water intake filter to inject the flood under the farm field.  This reduces agricultural loss due to high atmospheric advent. The "drain plate" then will also operate in the upside down position as the water intake plate if placed in the upside down position.

The algae bio reactor may need to be a fixed installation to then only have the hydrocarbon feed stock delivered to the "on-site" production site to produce the porous "cubes" and sealing plates and insert support members support.

The vertical corner ( structural support members),  then carry the earth load atop the cube system plus the estimated maximum weight of the farm implement ( tractor ) the being used. This prevents the porous cube system from being crushed by the weight of the harvest tractor.

The movement of earth to  "install" the system then by fuel less heavy equipment to also reduce the cost of

the installation.

The same system may then be installed by a fuel less electric all terrain vehicle "roving" plastic printer once the earth has been excavated. The  "rover printer" then depositing plastic upon a base sheet of plastic until the "lay" of the porous fill has been attained followed by a hot roller attachment to melt the top layers into a water proof solid layer as the water pumped into the system must be filtered first to reduce silt accumulation..

The rover then an autonomous device able to refill itself when required. The "rover" type deposition then also with water pump and filter system using the "fuel less road way water pump" also equipped with water steam on demand hot water system to then allow for the injection of water steam to clean out the plastic porous subterranean water holding system. The "rover" then the pick for large systems then able to reduce the human labor for large installations.

If using recycled  ( harvested ) plastics great care must be taken to insure the water is not effected by the chemical components of the plastic effecting the water. Not all plastic is suitable for the application.

The product may be useful in many Urban situations to then control Urban flooding. The current condition produced from flooding regarding the road ways the an increasing problem due to storm regarding volume capacity vs. rate of precipitation. The product then used as a highway "underlayment" assisted by the as an increased measure of safety.
