|Walkthrough & Notes|
The journal indicates that there should be an old waterway running beneath the bridge north of here, through the Dwarf-lords' Gate. It should be providing water to the Dolven-view, but it appears to have been closed.
There should be a pair of levers on the bridge that can be thrown to open the old waterway, and the fallen dwarf seemed to want to do this very task. You should take over in his stead.
The bridge running beneath the Dwarf-lords' Gate contains a hidden waterway that once brought fresh water to the Dolven-view. The waterway was closed long ago.
The bridge is very near the fallen rucksack and book of the dwarf who fell to his death.
You should throw the levers on the bridge to open the waterway running from the Dwarf-Lord's Gate to the Dolven-view.
Sót is at the Dolven-view camp, south of the bridge.
You should return to Sót and inform him that, even though you threw all the levers, you did not hear any water flow through the ancient waterways.
