  1. Are Centrifugal Pump Vector Diagram type problems common on the Water Resource Exam?
  2. My calcs show: Initial Flow = 834 cfs Reqd Flow = 834 x 1.2 = 1000.88 cfs A depth of 5.8 ft. gives a flow of 998.99 cfs, very close, but not quite the reqd 20% more than the original flow. A depth of 6.1 ft. gives a flow of 1059.37 cfs, which is 27% more than the original flow. I thought using 1.486 instead of 1.49 for the manning's conversion constant might give me an answer that agreed with a depth of 5.8 ft., but it made no difference. Lesson: Focus is as important as knowledge.
