Rome’s Early Water Delivery Systems

With the building of the first elevated aqueduct in Rome, the Aqua Anio Vetus in 273 BC, individuals who lived on the city’s hillsides no longer had to depend solely on naturally-occurring spring water for their needs. When aqueducts or springs weren’t accessible, people living at higher elevations turned to water pulled from underground or rainwater, which was made possible by wells and cisterns. In the very early 16th century, the city began to use the water that flowed beneath the earth through Acqua Vergine to deliver water to Pincian Hill. Through its initial construction, pozzi (or manholes) were placed at set intervals along the aqueduct’s channel. Even though they were originally designed to make it possible to service the aqueduct, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi started using the manholes to gather water from the channel, starting when he obtained the property in 1543.Rome’s Early Water Delivery Systems 75800617194.jpg Although the cardinal also had a cistern to amass rainwater, it couldn't supply a sufficient amount of water.
