If you check this article
http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/nation/sightseers-flood-to-spilling-dam/story-e6frg6nf-1225936851387
you will find the following synonyms used
floodgate
spillway gate
spillgate
sluice gate

and here is the official picture of Wivenhoe Dam

here, in irrigated agriculture the small things are called "pipe ends"
and "headwalls" I don't think either of these terms are suitable.
