  1. 1. 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 =?
