Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Waste water treatment plant
Spanish term or phrase: semianchura de canal
"Los reactores biológicos están formados por un depósito compartimentado de tipo carrusel, con unas dimensiones de 55,00 m de longitud recta y 9,85 m de **semianchura de canal** y una altura libre interior de 5,10 m."

Any ideas what "semianchura" means here? Literally "semi-width", but I can't make sense of it.
