Abstract: Computer based automatic control for three extensive open channel water distribution systems is described. Radio telemetry allows a central computer to execute control logic at individual check gates in response to downstream water levels. The downstream level control concept provides control based on system demands, thereby minimizing wasted water and providing greater distribution efficiency than conventional control methods.
