The oldest irrigation system in the world is in China. Called Dujiangyan, is still used today!

Scientists continue to admire Dujiangyan today for one particular feature – the harmonious way it manages water for humans yet enables ecosystems and fish populations to continue naturally.

Do you have any theories about whether the irrigation system lasted because it was done right, and therefore still useful and maintained?  Or is it just chance that it survived throughout the ages.  I know that some South American terracing is still used today, handed down for pre-Columbian times.  Of course, I seem to remember that China has some extensive terracing in places as well, handed down from the distant past.
