Nowadays, it is very important to co-operate of irrigation services and canal Hydroelectric Power Plants built by taking advantage of the drops on the irrigation canals. Irrigation canals in some irrigation schemes serve both irrigation and energy production. Therefore, it is important that the built canal is operated together for optimum irrigation service and energy production. In this study, Hydroelectric Power Plants constructed integrated with irrigation schemes in recent years by private companies and State Hydraulic Works in Turkey were examined. Technical, environmental and management problems encountered in the co-operation of Irrigation and Hydroelectric Power Plants were analyzed, and suitable solutions were offered for sustainable irrigation services and Hydroelectric Power Plant operation. Hydroelectric Power Plants built on canal of irrigation schemes should be operated in harmony with the environment and sustainably. But, if irrigation channels and hydroelectric power plants do not work together in harmony, they will cause important problems in terms of environment, operation and maintenance, administrative, monitoring and evaluation. To ensure the sustainability of hydroelectric power generation and to use existing water resources more efficiently for irrigation activities, it is very important to find permanent and effective solutions to these problems that arise while operating these systems.
