Other / Sewage/waste water treatment
Portuguese term or phrase: linha de água
I dont think this is "water line" in this context. It appears on a diagram of a sewage treatment works and is the final destination (a river or water pipe or something) of the treated water, after the effluent exits the plant. Any ideas ?

Explanation:
I found this site but can´t access it (I always have a very hard time accessing sites in Portugal):

I think this waterfall line is a natural depression on the land through which water flows. Rivers, streams, etc., all run in waterfall lines.
