Building a sluice gate and weir on the Irrigation Line

There was a lot of water trapped behind a wall, so,
We took the wall away, and,
noticed again how big the wall had been, and

we built a new and different wall

with a sluice gate to close off the irrigation line in times of flood, and to allow the water to flow directly to the river where the big wall had previously been.
Time to go home
This is a weir, where the water overflows to the river. You see the new wall under construction.
The flood gate in position.
