Portuguese term or phrase: cabo da levada
'Os levadeiros foram ao cabo da levada tapar a água da levada'

The Levada is a man-made water channel directing the course of water in agricultural areas.

I've seen a few but I don't know what cabo da levada would be.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help!
