French term or phrase: correction des eaux
It is in the context of large-scale excavations, which have been brought about by these "corrections". Does it mean some sort of re-routing?

From my Fr-En civil engineering dicko:

Correction d'eau

Modification de la quantite d'eau qui etait prevue par l'etude de formulation d'un beton.
L'ampleur de cette rectification d'eau est fonction du degre d'humidite du sable utilise. Cette revision est necessaire adin d'eviter un exces d'eau dans le beton.
