Preface The book fully covers the syllabus of the subject at the under graduate BE level examinations of various engineering colleges as well as of the Masters courses in Water Resources and Flood Control Engineering. Keeping in view the specific needs of the students of average calibre, very simple and lucid language has been adopted in the book, which has made this book extremely popular. Advance topic like "Flood forecasting" and "Computer Applications in Water Resources Systems", have been included in this book. Although these topics do not generally find inclusion in the syllabuses of the under graduate BE level courses of many of the engineering colleges, yet the same are required while preparing for the Civil Services (IAS) Competition, as well as for the GATE Exams for seeking admissions to the M.Tech course.
