pozos de esclusas (o compuertas)
Explanation:
Si te fijas cómo son las compuertas de agua de los diques, piletones y esas cosas, verás que algunas tienen un pozo delante (sobre todo las de salida o vaciado), otras un túnel. Pues bien, es allí donde no conviene meterse.

No te confundas entre "gate" y "grate".
