Water is the most important resource of life, so it becomes important to ensure the optimal usage of water. In 1960, various tools and policies have been formulated to ensure the optimal use of water. Various studies have been conducted to point out the need of water so as to ensure the efficient use of water can be made. A serious problem is also being faced in Haryana is the decreasing level of water and excess use which dilute its properties. So it is important to ensure the effective use of water. Various techniques have been suggested for water resource optimization based on linear programming, dynamic programming and simulation .Simulation models are often used with previous records or critical period of records. Generally, simulation models permit detailed and realistic representation of the complex physical, economic characteristics of a reservoir system. This paper presents the study of irrigation system in haryana and designs a simulator to minimize the loss of water.
