Abstract: The aim of this study was to search for an appropriate model approach for the selection of irrigation canal routes using transshipment technique. In the implementation of model, selection of The Optimal Canal routes among the alternatives and determination of optimum canal capacities were targeted. Study was carried in the Gaziantep-Hancagiz Irrigation Project of the GAP. The results of the research showed that there is no any significant difference between existing network and new irrigation network according to total canal length but on the other hand, the foundation cost of recommended network is lower.
