4 Design a surplus weir with stepped apron of a tank forming part of a chain of tanks with the following details.
Combined catchment area = 24.5 km2
Intercepted catchment area = 20.4 km2
Maximum water level = +123.75
Full tank level = +123.00
Ground level @ proposed side = +122.00
Ground level below proposed weir upto a reach of 5m (Fall) = +121.00
Tank bund level (TBL) = +125.50
Tank bund of tank bund = 2.0m
Side slope of bund on either side = 2.1
Level of hard strata = +120.50
Ryve's coefficient for combined catchment = 9
Ryve's coefficient for intercepted catchment = 1.6
Take hydraulic gradient = 1.5

Draw to a suitable scale.
a) Half plant at top and half plan at foundation.
b) Half elevation and half sectional elevation.
c) Cross section across the weir.
