I believe there have been a couple threads in the past about this. You might try a quick search.

What's it watering? Grass? Shrubs? Horses?
Is it to keep the dust down on the track?

You will probably have to address winter use freeze issues.

Thats what i was concerned about , I was thinking auto drains at low points and on either side of the valves , and using a master valve . And or having a air compressor attached to the system so they could blow it down themselves each night when necessary .

Auto drains are a waste of water, seems like they make hangers with low-drain check valves. I've done a few consultations for dust control and figured rotors on the back side of the posts. But for cooling, LDC misters would be the answer.
