Borrow pits should preferably be located in the central half-width of the section of the canal

Solution

An area that is created to remove earthen material and is used for the filling of another location.

  • External Borrow Pit: If the excavation is done outside the canal it is called an external borrow pit, external borrow pits are not preferred as there might be water stagnation which might lead to mosquito nuisance, etc.
  • Internal Borrow Pit:  If the excavation is done inside the canal it is called an internal borrow pit.

Therefore borrow pits should preferably be located in the central half-width of the section of the canal.
