  • Question # 01 A Reservoir operator has to be release water from reservoir for being picked up at a distanceof 50 Km for downstream users. The average width of the stream for the anticipator discharge of40km, The mean daily class a tank evaporation for this season is 0.5cm.Estimate the mean daily evaporation from the stream in Acre-feet per day .If the pan co-efficient is0.7. Assuming 15% loss due to seepage , find discharge at the head of canal if the required dischargeat the tail is to be 50 m3/s.SOLUTION : Discharge at tail Qtail = 50m3/s Discharge at head Qhead =? Surface area of stream = A =LxW as L = 50 km= 50 x 1000= 50000 m W = 40 m A = 50000 x 40 = 2000000 Seepage Lossees = 15 %Evaporation Losses : PAN Evaporation E = 0.5 cm PAN Co-efficient Kp = 0.7 LAKE Evaporation El =?

  • Question # 02 An Engineer-In-Charge of Reservoir operation has to release water from reservoir toprovide irrigation supplies at a discharge of 40 km for downstream Users. The average widthof the stream for the anticipates discharge is 25 km. The daily mean Class A pan evaporationfor this season is 5mm per day.Estimate the daily evaporation losses from the stream in hector-meter-per day.Solution: Stream Length = 40 km = 40 x 1000 = 40000 m Stream width (W) = 25m Surface Area of stream = 40000 x 25 = 1000000m2 Assuming Kp = 0.7 Pan Evaporation =E = 5mm/day El = Kp E = 0.7 x 5 = 3.5mnm or 0.0035m E Stream = 0.0035 x 1000000m 3 = 3500m3 1 Hector = 10000m2 E Stream = 3500_ 10000 = 0.35 hector-meter
