Abstract

To identify or develop alternative polymers, which may successfully replace polyacrylamide (PAM) as a reservoir or canal sealant, it is important to understand the nature of the sealing processes in earthen irrigation water structures and how PAM interacts with those processes to alter water seepage. The purpose of this paper is to review mechanisms that influence water infiltration into unlined irrigation canals and ponds and consider how PAM interactions with soils may alter these processes.
