Catalan term or phrase: sobreeixidors de mig punt
I have translated this provisionally as:

barrel-vaulted overflow channels

But I can't be sure. In Spanish the architectural term is 'medio punto' and refers to arches or vaulting.

Explanation:
Dear Ailish,

This means that the cited channels were built using the shape of this special sort of arch which has an exclusive round point. It's the tipical Romanic arch, as opposed to the gothic one.

Hope it helped!
