Notes on the Geography of Morocco: Marrakech Environs: Photo 2
The city's water supply has famously been derived, at least in part, from underground channels, the tunnels known by various names (qanat, karez, foggara, etc.), across the dry zone of North Africa and Asia. Here they are called khettara. Those of the Houaz have apparently been abandoned since the 1970s, and there are reports that those serving Marrakech itself were in disrepair long before then, but perfectly ordinary surface ditches survive.
