Three waterways: Culvert No. 125, the old raceway, and Eighteen Mile Creek, met the canal in this area.

The old raceway entered the canal about 125 feet east of this point and has since been abandoned. It was used to supply the lower level of the canal with waters drawn from the upper level, and then drained into Eighteen Mile Creek.

Eighteen Mile Creek enters this sluice to your right, and passes under the canal through Culvert No. 125.

The Hall Spillway was used to control the turbulence and to increase the water flow when the locks were open for the passage boats and barges. It also emptied into culvert No. 125.It was important to control the water levels in the creek as there were over fifty industries using the water from the canal during the 1870's, and several industries now have permits to use water from the canal.
