Asker: ¿Será algun error entonces? Yo tampoco lo encontraba en ningun lado... ¡Gracias!
Asker: ¡No vi su comentario sobre "filtradoras" -- creo que tiene que ser porque el agua fue algo contaminada. Gracias de nuevo...
Asker: Smarttrans: Thanks again for the help. In the end, I realized that the only reference to "filtering culverts" was the one from Washington State, so I think I need to go with Big Ed's answer, but I do appreciate your help.

Explanation: 'tarjea' is given as reservoir in Robb, origen Peru. This makes more sense than culvert. How would you filter water in a culvert??
To filter water it has to be passed through an in-line filter or allowed to seep through sand or other material in a container or tank. This why the text says 'there are pipes connected to it'.
