Often irrigation water is allowed to flow past the downstream end of irrigation furrows to adequately irrigate all of a crop. This tailwater runoff can be recirculated to the irrigation set. Predictions of tailwater volumes would aid in the design of tailwater pits, pumps, and return pipelines. A volume balance theory and graphical relationships for obtaining such predictions are presented herein.
