“if in Brooks worth seeing, but not worth detour”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Interesting piece of Canadian railroad history and example of poor engineering (insufficient gradient on aqueduct for full flow). Old concrete structure, over 3km long. Good interpretative centre boards, so something to see when the guides are not around.

“Irrigation history of Alberta”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Interesting bit of local history, well preserved. Reminds you that no-one can survive on the prairie desert without water, and explains how irrigation schemes have enabled farming in Alberta.You can drive or walk along the site.

“A Wonder”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

When I first seen the Aqueduct, I could not believe my eyes. It is something that every one should see. It certainly took alot of work to build this marvel.
