No. You can use much smaller pipelines because it is protected from direct sunlight which means no evaporation. Do you know how much water actually evaporates before it reaches the other end of the canal? It's insane.
Pipeline or canal depends on what you need.
The biggest water divert project on earth is South–North Water Transfer Project. China considered both pipeline and canal. There were a lot of debate.

True, pipeline can decrease evaporation a lot. Also you can use much higher pressure to speed up the water flow, which decrease the amount of pipelines, which means even thinner pipeline can deliver more water than the same size of canal.
On the other hand, canal is cheaper to build, easier to maintain. but water are easier to be polluted by fertilizer and chemical.

The water flow is seasonal usually. Canal can be built very large for the maximum need of the year. But pipeline can not, it's just too expensive.

Pipeline is more suitable for stable flow rate and pressure, so that every penny of the project worth it.

The size of the pipeline will be equal to a 10 story building for a small canal.
No. You can use much smaller pipelines because it is protected from direct sunlight which means no evaporation. Do you know how much water actually evaporates before it reaches the other end of the canal? It's insane.
- planting trees alongside the canal

- plants bridges on top of the canal

- build little islands in the canal with water plants and trees

Project for remodelling of Warsak canal okayed

MOHMAND: The federal government has approved a project for remodelling of Warsak Left Bank Canal, said chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Senator Hilalur Rehman while talking to this correspondent.

He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had approved development schemes for Mohmand tribal district, which included remodelling of Warsak Left Bank Canal, under the Accelerated Implementation Program (AIP) and ADP for fiscal year 2020-21.

He said that the total cost of the project would be Rs992 million and it would be completed in three years.

Senator Rehman recalled that in July 2019 the prime minister had called all the senators, including ex-Fata senators, for support during the no-trust move against Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani. He said at that time the prime minister had asked them to identify basic issues of their areas.

“I had submitted three issues of Mohmand tribal district, including remodelling of Warsak Left Bank Canal, opening of Pak-Afghan trade route and installation of Mamad Grid Station,” the senator said.

He said that a feasibility study of the scheme was completed recently.

Abdul Jalil, a resident of the area, said after its remodelling the Warsak Left Bank Canal would irrigate vast tracts of land in the area.

Senator Rehman thanked the federal government for approving the canal project, saying it would bring a revolution in the lives of Lower Mohmand people.

Thal Canal project
We hope the significant project does not fall prey to politics
Editorial | July 12, 2020


The order by Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar that work on the Greater Thal Canal should start without any further loss of time has kindled hopes of revival of the 160-year-old project. The canal will irrigate barren lands in the districts of south Punjab, thereby increasing food production manifold in the country. The main canal will be 35km long and its water-carrying capacity will be 8,500 cusecs. The length of branch canals will be 344km. The canal system will irrigate 290,000 acres of land in Bhakkar, Layyah, Muzaffargarh, Khushab and Jhang, increasing food production in these districts by as much as 40%.

The project was planned by the then government in 1860 and funds had also been allocated for it. It was, however, shelved due to the changing priorities of the government. The Mankirah branch of the Greater Thal Canal was completed in 2008, but after that the work was stopped. The Asian Development Bank has announced a grant of $150 million for the Chobarra branch of the canal. Now the chief minister has announced start of work on the project. Last year, Mr Buzdar had also laid the foundation stone of the 120-year-old Jalalpur canal system.

For the Thal Canal Project, the Punjab government will provide all sorts of resources, manpower and expertise. The chief minister has ordered that the legal process for acquisition of land for the purpose should be expedited and transparency should be ensured in payment for the acquired land. Experts are of the opinion that the canal will also help overcome the water shortage by preventing the rapidly declining groundwater level. The recent wheat shortage has also led the authorities to resume work on the long-stalled canal project. The resumption of work on the Thal Canal will increase food production which will not only make the country self-reliant in food but surplus will be available for export. We hope the significant project does not fall prey to politics.
