Lift irrigation scheme is under construction on the Narmada River at Nagalwadi. It is planned to irrigate 45,000 ha of agricultural land in Madhya Pradesh. The entire scheme envisages seven stage pumping. The main pump intake consists of 5 V.T. Pumps, each having a discharge of 3.75 cumec. The geometrically similar Froudian model was constructed on a model scale of 1:12.5 to observe the flow conditions at the intake. The operational matrix was studied for various pump operating combinations and hydraulic designs were verified.
