Draining and Damming a Major River - I by SL

Movie Description:

This is the first way I came up with to dry out the majority of a river. This movie shows what I did from the point at which I caused a cave-in to begin draining the river, until I successfully installed all the floodgates to dam it.

The setup was placing floodgates in a stockpile near the location, digging stairs down to the riverbed, digging out a massive mapwidth x 6 hall in the bottommost layer, clearing all the rocks out of that, digging 1 x 6 columns directly under the river all the way to the hall in the bottom layer, building floors held by two supports above the river, over that 1 x 6 area, linking the supports to levers, and removing the stairs from which the floors were built.

Should've dug out channels both in front of and behind the floodgate point, and made 'em 2 tiles wide.

They really didn't want to build those floodgates.

Curiosity killed the cat.

What happened to the cat?
Was it killed by the falling stones from the dam or was it a separate event?
