That it takes more than 50 million gallons of water for each ship to pass transit the Panama Canal?

50 million gallons not recycled? Of course they are. Have you ever looked at the rainfall statistics for the mountains of Panama? It flows down the Chagris River into Gatun Lake so they can pass another ship out to sea. Mother Nature is one of the best recyclers on planet Earth!

CA,
My husband and I are booked for the Carnival Spirit Panama Canal 4/4/02, and we can hardly wait! It must really be something if you're going back for your 4th!
