Abstract: Manning's roughness coefficients are presented for three of the oldest and largest irrigation canals in Egypt. The discharges ranges from 35 to 318 m3/s. The spread in value of Manning's n from extremely smooth to very rough indicates improvement must be made in the collection of field data which is to be utilized in a monitoring system to implement better delivery of water to the vast number of farmers in Egypt's Delta.
