Original Water Supply Techniques in Rome

Original Water Supply Techniques in Rome With the building of the first elevated aqueduct in Rome, the Aqua Anio Vetus in 273 BC, folks who lived on the city’s hills no longer had to be dependent exclusively on naturally-occurring spring water for their demands. When aqueducts or springs weren’t easily accessible, people living at raised elevations turned to water pulled from underground or rainwater, which was made available by wells and cisterns. To offer water to Pincian Hill in the early 16th century, they utilized the new process of redirecting the stream from the Acqua Vergine aqueduct’s underground channel. Through its initial construction, pozzi (or manholes) were installed at set intervals alongside the aqueduct’s channel. While these manholes were created to make it much easier to conserve the aqueduct, it was also feasible to use containers to remove water from the channel, which was exercised by Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi from the time he invested in the property in 1543 to his passing in 1552. Apparently, the rainwater cistern on his property wasn’t enough to meet his needs. Via an opening to the aqueduct that flowed below his property, he was able to satisfy his water desires.
