Further research will be needed to overcome the problems of wind and wave action. Attention also needs to be given to the effects of evaporation control measures on aquatic life. Control of aquatic vegetation is also an important factor in operations in order to decrease the losses by non-economic transpiration. Vegetation control by manipulation of reservoir levels, chemical treatment, burning mechanical removal are all utilized in this control. Seepage from small reservoirs farm ponds can be controlled by lining the reservoir with concrete, plastics, clay, salt and other chemicals.

The total supply of water on this planet earth is essentially fixed. Thus, man must find ways to increase crop production and also meet his other requirements for water by more efficient use of world’s limited water supply. The earth’s reservoir of water is largely the vast oceans. One fourth of the sun’s total energy is used to evaporate approximately three feet of pure water from the seas. A portion of this water vapor moves over land masses and falls as rain or snow. The term hydrological cycle is used to describe the movement of water in its several states through various processes in the passage from the oceans to the atmosphere and its return to the seas.
