The management of the water resources in a canal can be disturbed by the users, if the demand deliveries have been increased because a farmer obtained a greater flow than the scheduled delivery, the watermaster does not know the reason why the water level decreases at the target points, but the watermaster can know this information because CSI can obtain the unknown flow withdrawn by the farmer. On the other hand, if farmer pumps water from an unknown point in the canal, CSI can obtain the approximate location
of this point and the volume of water withdrawn by the farmer. CSI can also define the hydrodynamic state of a canal during a predictive horizon which is very useful in any case, because the hydrodynamic state of a canal is defined from the velocity and water level in each cross-section of the canal. In short, CSI algorithmcan be a useful tool in the management of a canal.
