Chinampas

These raised platforms were built in marshy areas and the water level was regulated by different dikes.

Dikes

Dikes were especially important in the Aztec irrigation system because they regulated how much water the crops got. These structures are simply man made ridges around the banks of a river that regulate water flow.

Built over old temples instead of making new ones
