From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a water-course or channel (Job 38:25). The "conduit of the upper
    pool" (Isa. 7:3) was formed by Hezekiah for the purpose of
    conveying the waters from the upper pool in the valley of Gihon
    to the west side of the city of David (2 Kings 18:17; 20:20; 2
    Chr. 32:30). In carrying out this work he stopped "the waters of
    the fountains which were without the city" i.e., "the upper
    water-course of Gihon", and conveyed it down from the west
    through a canal into the city, so that in case of a siege the
    inhabitants of the city might have a supply of water, which
    would thus be withdrawn from the enemy. (See SILOAM.)
      There are also the remains of a conduit which conducted water
    from the so-called "Pools of Solomon," beyond Bethlehem, into
    the city. Water is still conveyed into the city from the
    fountains which supplied these pools by a channel which crosses
    the valley of Hinnom.
