    How to use "Canal" in context?

    A canal is a watercourse that is cut through a ridge, mountain or other natural obstacle, such as a sandstone cliff, and contains a channel that is wide enough for a ship to pass through. The key features of a canal are the sides of the canal that are steeply inclined, and the wider portion of the canal, known as the "main canal." A canal is created by digging a series of trenches and then filling them with dirt, rocks, and then water. The width of the main canal is typically twice the depth of the trenches.
