iv)The catchment area shall be marked on the Topo Sheet for all the CAs more than 2.5 Sq. Km.If the C.A. is less than 2.5 Sq.km.,the C.A. is to be traversed on ground and to be furnished. 

2.M.F.D.CALCULATIONS

The MFD may be computed as per the following formula:

1.IN UPLAND AREAS:

Dicken's Formula, Q = CM3/4

Q =  Discharge in Cusecs.

M = Catchment area in sq.miles

C = Coefficient depending on Catchment area. CA upto 1 Sq.mile.                            

C=1400 CA from 1 Sq.mile to 30 Sq.miles    

C=1200 CA more than 30 Sq.mileC=1060

(2) IN DELTAIC AREAS :

Ryve's Formula Q = CM2/3

C = 1000 for Q  more than 500 cusecs C = 750 for Q  less than 500 cusecs

For deltaic catchment areas of Krishna & Godavari, the formula shall be Ryve's formula adopting 'c' value as per Mitra Committee Report for Upland & Deltaic Catchments.

Observed MFD maybe computed from the observed MFL and shown on the LS & CSs.

Bore hole data / TPs upto Hard strata or for min. depth of 2m for shallow foundations & upto 1/3rd embedment depth below maximum scour depth, along the Centre Line @ suitable intervals depending upon the importance of the structure with minimmum 5 Nos. of TPs  covering both the Drain & Canal @ centre, U/S & D/S sides.Also the Safe Bearing Capacity of foundation strata be furnished(Table I & II of APERL for test  results of foundation soils    enclosed., IRC 78:2000.)
