Abstract

Irrigation water is made available to the farmers by means of construction of a dam/weir and a canal system taking off from the reservoir impounded behind the dam. This water is therefore very precious. If the canal system is not lined, about 25 to 30 per cent of water released in the canal is lost by way of seepage through canals. Canals should therefore be lined not only to save this water but also to irrigate additional area. A pilot project of providing such lining on experimental basis was taken up for the first time in India by Irrigation Department of the Government of Gujarat. The lining has been provided on their canals of different capacities in the Ukai-Kakrapar command. Also a special experimental model has been developed in the laboratory to evaluate the interacted efficiency of grout and geotextile mattress from the consideration of strength and permeability.

Lining of Perennial Canals Under Flowing Conditions by Ulomat Grouted Mattress Technique

St. Louis, Missouri

Irrigation water is made available to the farmers by means of construction of a dam/weir and a canal system taking off from the reservoir impounded behind the dam. This water is therefore very precious. If the canal system is not lined, about 25 to 30 per cent of water released in the canal is lost by way of seepage through canals. Canals should therefore be lined not only to save this water but also to irrigate additional area. A pilot project of providing such lining on experimental basis was taken up for the first time in India by Irrigation Department of the Government of Gujarat. The lining has been provided on their canals of different capacities in the Ukai-Kakrapar command. Also a special experimental model has been developed in the laboratory to evaluate the interacted efficiency of grout and geotextile mattress from the consideration of strength and permeability.
