Chapter Summary

The main axis of the irrigation system of the southern irrigated plain is the Mulan weir and its main canal built in the Northern Song, in Xining. Each village in the Putian plains is intimately connected to a particular channel and /or secondary canal, as well as to specific sluice gates and sets of dikes and other installations. The central temple of the southern irrigated plain was originally the Xieyingmiao built on the southern bank of the Lai river by the side of the Mulan Weir. Weixinli sub-canton contained eleven villages in the Qing dynasty, including Beitou, Tiezao, Shanghengshan, Xiahengshan, Goukou , Henggou, Qianhuang , Zhengban , Guitang, Tangdong , and Houliao. The northern irrigated plain lies to the north of the Mulan river. The Jiuliyang irrigated plain refers to the plain around Jiangkou town at the mouth of the Qiulu river.
