Inscription. At several points along its path, the canal crossed natural streams flowing toward the river. To avoid damage to the fragile canal bed, the streams were channeled under the canals through culverts. This arch culvert consisted of a wing wall on the outside of both canal banks and arched stone channel that passed under the canal bed through which the stream flowed. Portions of both the entrance and exit arch and walls still remain. If you look closely between them you can see the foundation stones of the arch channel which carried water under the canal bed.
