Large bodies of water don't evaporate.

So, I was playing with water today, made myself a farm and a pool for my townies to swim in at some later point. I, however made a mistake and I needed to dry those large masses of water so I disconnected them from the river. The result? yeah they don't evaporate. That's annoying, as I don't want to remove water manually.

On that note-is THE RIVER infinite water or is it actually limited?

Only "low" water evaporates, so, you will have to dry that area using other method :) (not a bug)

Yes, the river have infinite water

Yeah, you will need to either build a drain tunnel or just manually remove a few water blocks so the rest could evaporate.

Also, pro tip, either build arcs inside those irrigation tunnels (after the water dry out) or have bridges so they could drop the harvested crops on those to save on walking time for your townies.
