Spanish term or phrase: barrera fija tipo vertedora
Estoy traduciendo un texto técnico sobre la construcción de un embalse y un canal alimentador para su operación. En la descripción del canal alimentador, se menciona la construcción de una "barrera fija tipo vertedora" o solo una "barrera fija vertedora" más adelante.

Solo he podido averiguar que existen barreras fijas y barreras móviles en el diseño de estos canales, pero no he podido dar con el término en inglés. Este es el contexto tal como aparece en el documento:

"La configuración de la bocatoma del canal alimentador consta de una barrera fija de tipo vertedora, dispuesta en el brazo derecho transversal al flujo del río, más una obra de toma superficial de tipo lateral".

¿Alguna sugerencia?

Saludos.

Explanation:
A surface water intake, for irrigation, water supply, etc., usually consists of a dam or weir across the river or stream. 1. Part of it is just a dam, not adjustable for more or less flow. 2. Part of it may have gates of some kind, that can be closed to keep more water behind the dam, or opened to let more water flow downstream. 3. And the intake, which is often an area of the dam with a lower elevation, which will let water flow into the feeder canal when it is above a certain level.
