The Brooks Aqueduct was built between 1912 and 1914 as part of an irrigation system to provide water to the arid farmlands of southeastern Alberta. At the time of its completion, it was the world’s longest elevated concrete structure when completed.

The main section of the aqueduct spans a 3.2-kilometer valley at an average elevation of 20 meters. Though the aqueduct is no longer functional, it has been preserved as a historic site.
