Shape of free surface flow

Given a stream of water from a vertical pipe of half- width \[W\],height \[H\] and initial velocity \[ \vec{v}\],landing on a solid surface,is it possible to solve for the shape of the surface of the water stream?Please post your answers, with working.

Truth be told, I have no idea how to approach this. I am just curious if this would work,and it may help my physics tournament,so I would not know if your answers and responses are incorrect. But we can discuss the solution over here!
