This falling water at the fall has some surplus energy.

What is meant by canal escape?
Canal Escapes: It is a side channel constructed to remove surplus water from an irrigation channel (main canal, branch. canal, or distributary etc.) into a natural drain.
What is trapezoidal notch fall?
Trapezoidal Notch Fall In this type of fall a body wall is constructed across the canal. The body wall consists of several trapezoidal notches between the side piers and the intermediate pier or piers. The sills of the notches are kept at the upstream bed level of the canal.
What is the principle of application of trapezoidal notch?
A trapezoidal notch is a combination of a rectangular notch and two triangular notches as shown in figure. It is, thus obvious that the discharge over such a notch will be the sum of the discharge over the rectangular and triangular notches.
What is meant by canal regulation?
A canal obtains its share of water from the pool behind a barrage through a structure called the canal head regulator. Though this is also a regulation structure for controlling the amount of water passing into the canal (with the help of adjustable gates), it shall be discussed under diversion works (Module 4).
