Watershed Description:Palleru River, which drains portions of the Districts of Khammam, Warangal, Nalgonda and Krishna districts in the State of Andhra Pradesh in southeast India. 
Calibration Summary: 
Validation Summary:Monthly (1972-94) r2 = 0.61 (r2 =0.84 after removing "outliers") monthly E = 0.87 
General Comments:Study evaluated and validated assessment of return flow, following introduction of canal irrigation in the watershed. The temporal variation of the return flows and the original flow characteristics prior to introduction of irrigation were also determined.
