Once again, I didn't find a thing.
For some time now I have harboured the suspicion that this conduit may have been destroyed to make way for the stretch of National Freeway Number 3 which runs between the two reservoirs. If that is the case then it would follow that Lantan is now fed purely by direct rainfall on its' surface, though I can't quite bring myself to believe this simply because I've never seen it dry.
I took a few pictures whilst I was there, and then drove back to Tainan city.

|The first of several shots looking eastward toward the mountains of Alishan district. I had wanted to stitch these into a panorama, but for some reason neither of the two programs I use could do it.|

|The dam at its' highest point with tourists ambling along the top and flying kites.|

|The barrier between the reservoir and the feeder stream with water flowing over the top.|
|Looking westward back toward the main tourist corner of the reservoir.|
|I took a series of these shots and again, neither of the two programs I use could stitch them together into a panorama shot, which is a shame.|
|The water quality monitoring station is just visible in the center right of this image, with bits of the south side of Chiayi city in the background.|
|Looking toward the trees on the north western side which hide two corridors of water, one of which contains the portcullis gate for the feeder conduit to Lantan reservoir.|
