How Are Roman Aqueducts Used Today?

Some of the Roman aqueducts are still in use in modern times, even though some of them are nowadays pressurized. An example of an aqueduct still in use is the ancient Aqua Virgo, which feeds the famous Trevi fountain in Rome.

Roman aqueducts are still in use in countries such as Italy, France, Portugal, Israel and Turkey. In ancient times, aqueducts were used to transport all water to the cities, but today many of them are only used for irrigation purposes. Further examples of Roman aqueducts still in use include the aqueduct at Nimes in France and the aqueduct at Merida in Spain.
