Definition Of aqueduct
an artificial channel for conveying water, typically in the form of a bridge supported by tall columns across a valley.
It seems likely, judging from the sediments in the water channels, that the aqueduct went on supplying water to Nîmes until the early medieval period.
Example Of aqueduct
Additional aqueducts have been built, but water is still scarce in some areas of the city.
By all accounts it was magnificent settlement supplied with plentiful water from aqueducts powered by windmills.
Elaborate systems of aqueducts and ditches brought water from dammed springs to planted terraces, demonstrating engineering and building skills as well as planning and organizing abilities.
Even today, residents of desert outposts like Khotan and Korla live as they have for centuries, funneling precious water in ancient aqueducts to fields bursting with grapes and apricots.
Finally we visited part of the Roman aqueduct that brought water from the mountains into the city.
