In order to investigate the effect of submerged vanes in the exclusion of inflow sediment into the Veis pump station, a distorted Froude scale model is used. The physical model was constructed in the Hydraulic Laboratory at the Water and Science Collage of the University of Shahid Chamran, Ahwaz, Iran. The submerged vanes were used with three different vane arrays. The result of this research indicates that the submerged vane has effectiveness role to limit the inflow bed and suspended load sediments into water intakes. Ultimately the two rows vanes which were located outside of intake entrance were most effective and they can reduce the sedimentation 63% into the water intakes.
