Raised BridgesAs a means of speeding along trade and being defense ready, many removable wooden bridges litter the trail of major roads, particularly, of Nozwa, Coyot, and Tesh that circle around the entire city proper.
Chinampa FarmingThe most important crop grown on chinampas are maize, squash, and beans. These three crops are planted together since they keep the nutrients in the soil. It is the government's policy to store 15 months' worth of nutritional crops surplus every year in the event of a siege or to trade for other goods as they get closer to their expiration.

Black Salt Islands
Atzacualco CampanAtzacualco District is about half-and-half in terms of land to Chinampas and was the first direction which Sangsalgu expanded its infrastructure.
Cuepopan CampanCuepopan sits on the least amount of actual land. Most of its surface, be it for residence or agriculture, now rest over anchored chinampas.
Moyotlan CampanBecause Moyotlan District was the closest to Ocumtit, the Sang were very hesitant to build on the islets in the area or extend their chinampas. Therefore, even now, this district has left most of the Mixed Lake's waters exposed with slow chinampas worming their way along either side of the great causeway.
Zoquiapan CampanThe land that the Zoquiapan District now rests on was once the dumping grounds of many garbage. But as the city expanded, excess water was drained and further discarded materials piled on to provide a steadier base for building on.
