**drwls**, Saturday, February 13, 2010 at 3:14amThe water surface area multiplied by the rate of water level rising equals the volume flow rate. Let's write this as

A*dh/dt = dV/dt = 14 ft^/min.

All you need is the area of water surface, A. At a depth of 8 inches, water is 2/3 of the way to the top and the width of the water channel is (2/3)*4 = 8/3 feet. The total surface area is

(8/3) ft x 15 ft = 40 ft^2

Therefore

dy/dt = 14 ft^3/min/40 ft^2 = 0.35 ft/min
