RAG603 Water Harvesting and Soil Conservation Structures
Water harvesting -principles, importance and issues. Water harvesting techniques –
classification based on source, storage and use. Runoff harvesting – short-term and long-term
techniques. Short-term harvesting techniques – terracing and bunding, rock and ground
Long-term harvesting techniques – purpose and design criteria. Structures – farm ponds –
dug-out and embankment reservoir types, tanks and subsurface dykes. Farm pond –
components, site selection, design criteria, capacity, embankment, mechanical and emergency
spillways, cost estimation and construction.
Percolation pond – site selection, design and construction details. Design considerations of
nala bunds. Soil erosion control structures – introduction, classification and functional
requirements. Permanent structures for soil conservation and gully control – check dams,
drop, chute and drop inlet spillways – design requirements, planning for design, design
procedures – hydrologic, hydraulic and structural design and stability analysis.
Hydraulic jump and its application. Drop spillway – applicability, types – straight drop, boxtype
inlet spillways – description, functional use, advantages and disadvantages, straight
apron and stilling basin outlet, structural components and functions. Chute spillway –
description, components, energy dissipaters, design criteria of Saint Antony Falls (SAF)
stilling basin and its limitations. Drop inlet spillway – description, functional use and design
