What were ancient roman aqueducts used for?
The aqueducts were used mainly to bring fresh clean water to
where it was needed. This need could be either in cities and towns
or for agriculture purposes. In the city of Rome itself, the eleven
aqueducts were used for the forementioned purposes and also for the
public baths, private homes, public fountains and for the flooding
of the Colosseum when naval battles were staged.
