Extending itself to the limits of available technology, the CPR made two important decisions, the use of a uniquely shaped open flume and the use of Portland cement as a cost effective building material. Although common in America, Portland cement was not as well known a building material. Muckleston thought he would minimize the forces slowing the flow by using it. It was a daring decision, a novel combination of principles for use in aqueduct construction.
