This article is supposedly about a sluice, but immediately gets involved in the intricacies of sluice gates. The lead has a very US biased and detailed piece about slide gates. Should 'sluice gates' be an article in its own right, or does this article just need re-organising? --Derek Andrews (talk) 12:48, 8 February 2009 (UTC) I think it needs reoranising.

I changed it from "sluice" to "écluse". I just discovered "sluice" as a french word, and its definition is completely different from "ecluse", which, from the context and the pictures, is what we're looking for. Please remove this section :) 126.96.36.199 (talk) 01:14, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
I have some information to add, but am not sure where to put it and whether it fits in this article.
In Dutch, the word 'sluis' can be explained as sluice (a way to control water flow or water level with movable parts) or it can be explained as lock (a way to get ships or boats uphill). Smiling Eve (talk) 03:20, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
You can make a section called "Etymology" and place the information in there. These types of sections are fairly common below the lead. Please cite a source though and if you need help, let me know. Thanks!--NortyNort(Holla) 19:07, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
