Irrigation networks of open-water channels are used throughout the world to support agricultural activity. By and large, these networks are managed in open loop. To achieve closed-loop water distribution management, it is necessary to augment these civil engineering systems with an appropriate information infrastructure-sensors, actuators, information processing, and communication resources. Recent pilot projects in Australia demonstrate the significant potential of closed-loop management, which can yield a significant improvement in the quality of service, while achieving improved water distribution efficiency. This paper focuses on the modelling and closed-loop control of open-water channels from the perspective of large-scale irrigation network management. Several feedback information structures are discussed and the key design tradeoffs identified
