dc.description.abstractModernization implies not just rebuilding but rather improving to meet new performance criteria. For irrigation water delivery systems, better customer service is high on the list of priorities. Agricultural customers are facing increasing competition, increasing water costs, and increasing production costs. Improvements in water deliveries can facilitate improved farm irrigation systems management. Canal automation is potentially one piece of the puzzle in trying to modernize and improve overall project performance. Canal automation theory has advanced substantially over the last decade. However, few of these advances have been implemented on operating projects because the theory has not been easy to apply. This paper presents the results of ongoing research to make canal automation more affordable and to integrate it with water delivery operations.
