The Washington Accord is one of seven mutual recognition agreements managed by the International Engineering Alliance. Signatories to the Washington Accord recognize the substantial equivalency of programs accredited by the signatory bodies. Signatories to the Washington Accord agree to make every reasonable effort that licensing bodies in respective countries recognize this substantial equivalency. Despite 25 years of the Washington Accord, only a minority of US state licensing boards acknowled...

Online inventory of tube-wells in a canal command through digital photography.Farmer Organization engaged in groundwater monitoring as an institution.Automatic recording instruments for monitoring groundwater levels and quality. Due to extensive groundwater development in the recent past, Pakistan now faces enormous challenges of groundwater management as it struggles to ensure food security for its rapidly growing population. These management challenges require a re-balancing of surface and gro...

AbstractMultimachine scheduling problems with earliness/tardiness costs and sequence-dependent setup times are analogous to the simultaneous irrigation scheduling problem with water travel times between outlets in a canal irrigation system where all the farmers are supplied with identical discharges at their requested time, i.e., arranged demand irrigation scheduling. The multimachine scheduling problem with earliness/tardiness costs even without setup consideration is computationally very deman...

AbstractA key operational objective for the management of the Indus Basin Irrigation System of Pakistan is the distribution of water among tertiary canals in a transparent and equitable manner. Decisions on canal operations are disseminated as a Canal Operation Plan, or a Rotational Program, for each crop season for every canal system. The current practice for developing these plans is qualitative based on heuristics that have remain unchanged since the early development of this vast irrigation ...

This paper examines the fairness in distribution of water in a tertiary canal within the Indus Basin Irrigation System. Two methodologies are proposed: canal rating equations, and outlet discharge equations. The methodology is applied to a tertiary canal located in the Punjab, Province of Pakistan. Fairness/equity is expressed quantitatively using the Gini index. There is a difference in the estimated discharge depending on the methodology employed, however as we move along the canal the water a...

AbstractEquity of water distribution is an oft-repeated and stated aim of the warabandi irrigation systems prevalent in Pakistan and parts of India. The Canal Operations Plan is one tool used to operationalize equitable distribution of water. These plans are created for every canal system every crop season. This companion paper applies operations research tools to this problem and explicitly minimizes inequity as measured by the Gini index of the cumulative depth of water supplied. The results a...

AbstractSeveral irrigation water delivery methods are in practice in irrigated agriculture throughout the world, and a variety of classifications have been suggested by different researchers. Demand, arranged-demand, and rotation are the three main types of irrigation schedules/delivery methods. Irrigation systems may also be classified as either sequential or simultaneous. Supplying water sequentially to farmers according to their requested times constitutes an irrigation scheduling problem ana...
