This is the last collecting pond where the pipe (in light blue on the map) splits just to the west into the northern (to Benghazi) and western (to Tripoli) segments of this massive engineering project.
Ancient water is drawn from acquifers in the south (you can follow the pipe) and gravity fed down to this holding pond.
There was enough concrete used in this project to make a road 12 feet wide to the moon.
