Yes, Rene, it can also be called water lock, but the translation for us in Dutch is water channel :)

My husband worked for the Ministry of Transportation. :) reclaiming all the water!

I love your work.

Huh?! Is that because the water is moving by itself, with out paying any road tax or what so ever?!
