UlTIII Gatunn locks proved to lie quite a deterrmining factor In the building
of the l'anan ennal. When the work: was started there Was a saying
that "the lentgth of time It (lakes to build the eanal depends on the
time It takes to build the Culebra cut." But later the words " Gatun
locks" were subtituted for "Culebra cut."
There is a system of three twin locks at Gatlin. Two million five hundred
thousand cubie yards of concrete were nsed In their construction. In conjunc
tion with the Gatun dam they serve to hold back the tremendous force of
water from the Gatun Iake, whieh Is eighty-live feet above sen levelI. Three
levels of locks raise boats from the Atlantie level to the eight-ive foot level.
