Dirty water sprinklers

I am about to install my sprinkler system. I will be using a pump to get water from an irrigation ditch. I wanted to use pop-up rotors, but was told that they would clog up with dirty water. So now the only sprinklers that I can use are pop-up impacts, like the Rainbird Maxipaws. Do you agree that non-impact rotors are not practical with dirty water? And do I have any other choices rather than Maxipaws?
thanks for your answers.

That is about your only choice, unless you put a high grade filter in the system.
