It will be a constant danger to the adjoining people, and also it will be impossible to mantain it. For example, let slope of a particular canal be say 1 in 5000 and general slope of the ground say 1 in 2500. If canal bed at the start i.e. zero distance, is say 1 m in cutting. The bed of canal will just coincide with ground level at a distance of 5000 m and thereafter. The bed of the canal will come in filling. The fill of the canal will…
