                  Definition of aqueduct

                  1.  conduit for water especially : one for carrying a large quantity of flowing water

                  2.  a structure for conveying a canal over a river or hollow

As defined by Merriam-Webster





It further states:
               Based party on the Latin ducere, meaning "lead" or "conduct", the word aqueduct named an ancient civil-engineering marvel. You may have seen photos of the great arches of ancient aqueducts spanning valleys in countries throughout the old Roman Empire, practical pipelines that are also regarded as works of timeless beauty.

 


The Roman Empire Aqueduct

The aqueducts were built by the Romans primarily to provide a constant flow of water to cities and towns.  The greater the empire spread, the more aqueducts that were constructed.  Rome wanted to supply its citizens with a plentiful supply of water keep them more comfortable and content.

The aqueduct system allowed the building of public baths, fountains, latrines.  It allowed for the removal of waste water, keeping the towns clean and free from waste.

Without the aqueduct, the Roman Empire could never have succeeded to the extent that it did for over 500 years.  Without your own mentor, you may find it difficult to succeed to fully understand what lies ahead in your career.
