From introduction: Practical aspects of canal operation, control, and automation are presented in this manual. The manner in which subjects are organized begins with fundamentals and basic concepts, continues with more specific details, and finishes with the more complex aspects of control theory analysis. Available and successful control techniques discussed in the manual are presented from the method standpoint (Specific equipment is not discussed in volume 1). Thus, the control methods will not become outmoded as equipment technology advances. The manual is divided into three parts that address three levels of readership: Volume 1 - water users and operators, Volume 2 - Planning and design engineers, and Volume 3 - Research and development specialists.
