Canal Modernization in Section Software
Canal Modernization: When the canal is not performing as per the original estimate and if sufficient water is not reaching till the end, then existing canal is improvised to ensure that it starts functioning effectively. Normally, such projects are taken up after many years once the utilisation reduced substantially. There are many reasons such as water leakage, Silt accumulation at bed, variation in water flow gradient, Etc. To overcome all these issues modernising the existing canal to the current requirement and design standard is essential. ESurvey CADD Section module offers easy to use features for preparing cross sections for Modernization projects.
