The Brooks Aqueduct was built over 90 years ago by the Canadian Pacific Railway's irrigation division to serve as a vital link in its expansive irrigation network. The aqueduct stretched the limits of engineering design and technology, and at the time, it was the largest concrete structure of its kind in the world. Like a giant centipede, it spans a shallow 3.2 km (2 miles) wide valley, suspending a concrete sling 20 metres (66 feet) above the prairie landscape. Once filled with water bound for the croplands of southwestern Alberta, today this national and provincial historic site holds only memories.
