HistoryThe first large scale aqueducts were constructed by ancient Rome as early as the 7th century BC. Water transport is one of the first things that a city needs and it was common for ancient civilizations to construct extensive systems of aqueducts.
ExampleThe Colorado River Aqueduct takes water from the Colorado River and delivers it to the Los Angeles area. It runs for 242 miles or 389 kilometers and is the primary water supply for Southern California.
