BROOKS AQUEDUCT

The Brooks Aqueduct was constructed in the early 20th Century as part of an irrigation project to develop large scale agriculture in southern Alberta. The aqueduct served the region for 65 years before being decommissioned and has since been hailed as an innovative and courageous project from design to construction. However, such innovations lead to a multitude of issues that plagued the aqueduct throughout its working life and continue to cause problems for the heritage managers tasked with preserving this unique structure. The Snap-Inspect applications were used to track those damages and repairs done at the aqueduct overtime to learn from the mistakes made by those that designed, constructed, and maintained the aqueduct to help preserve and conserve this unique structure for the future.
