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.
