Gargantuan gutters

Gargantuan gutters
The roads of Stellenbosch have serious gutters. This one isn't even the deepest - some gutters are more like canals with fairly decent streams of water flowing along their length. Try not to run your car off into one of those babies - it won't be pleasant. :)

    These aren’t gutters but are actually canals used in the old days before modern piping to send water to the various parts of town. You could then open the gate from the canal into your garden and channel water to all your plants and vegetables.

    Thanks for the info Alan. One of my colleagues uses pumps to suck water from our modern gutters (when it rains, of course) for storage in huge tanks that he keeps to water his garden. I wonder if anyone in Stellenbosch still uses water from their canals.
