“This Naviglio di Paderno is 2,605 metres long; 11 metres wide on the bottom; the water is always kept at a depth of 1.20 metres, there is a minimum gradient of  0.10 and a maximum of 0.45 every thousand metres so that the speed per second is a minimum of 0.31 and a maximum of 1.50. The gradient is divided into 26.40 metre sections between the supports and 1.10 metres between the margins of the bottom. The slope is distributed for 26,40 metres onto the supports and for 1.10 metres as the bottom slope. (C. Cantù, Grande illustrazione del Lombardo Veneto, Milano, 1857).
