Complete water control and measurement in farm distribution systems are essential requirements for an efficient irrigation system. Problems and hydraulic principles involved in the selection, design and operation of structures for accurate water control and measurement are presented in this chapter. For convenience, the chapter has been divided into two main categories, open channel and closed systems. Control and measurement structures and methods are discussed for each.
