How long have we been using aqueducts?



  1. 0 Votes

    Well humans have been using aqueducts for thousands of years. The Roman Empire had the Assyrians build their aqueducts around 691 B.C to bring fresh water to the cities; supplying them with drinking water, irrigation, flushed sewage, and even time defying fountains.

    Though Rome is a great example of historical applications of aqueducts, these systems were used well before the Romans in ancient Persia, India, Egypt, and other Middle Eastern countries.

    Simple aqueduct-like systems were used by Persia, India, Egypt, and other Middle Eastern areas before the Romans used them.  The Romans, however, were most famously known for their aqueduct systems. They were built from a combination of stone, brick, and pozzuolana (special volcanic cement). The Roman aqueduct system was 260 miles long, with only 30 miles being the huge, arched structures commonly associated with the aqueducts. Construction of the first Roman aqueduct began in 312 BC, and the last was completed in 226 AD.
