767 [=128] (V.2)




Status: Complete


useful when the supply does not
exceed the capacity of the branch
in laying the main trunk
dry, and of converting the branch
into an escape. Collectively they
may relieve the main trunk
and with the aid of the escapes
do all that is required without
the aid of the relulator des-
-cribed in the [1st?] section. Practice
and the electric telegraph will
render these works of the highest
value and importance to the
regulation of supply. They
come under the following heads

A. Head of the Futtigurh Branch
B. Do Bolundshuhur do
C. Do Koel do
D. Works at the [Vanoon?] Fork
connected with the termi-
nal lines to the Ganges
and the [Jumna?].

A. The Futtigurh Branch
leaves the main trunk on the left
at the 50th mile of its course
at an angle of 60° degrees; its
supply is calculated at 1240
cubic feet per second, and the
main trunk after having dis-
-posed of this supply passes
onwards in a volume equal to
5180 cubic feet per second.
The slopes of the channels of
both the branch and main
trunk are equal [?] 15 inches
per mile, and the soil through
which they pass consists of a
combination of clay and sand
in which the latter predominates.

I have in diagram XIX
in the 2nd part of this paper,
given an outline of the works
attached to the branch heads.
