Here is a nice video on qanats:
"The Qanats of Iran"

It would seem that a keyline system and qanats would be a perfect 
combination. I wonder if this has ever been tried. At least upslope 
water infiltration providing water for the origin of the qanat could be 
improved with development of a keyline system on slopes above the first 
qanat borehole.

Great soundtrack with the video.
