The Romans created an aquarium in their republics and in the subsequent empire to bring water to cities and towns from outside sources. Aquaculture is a collection of water made from man, which was made to deliver water from one place to another.

With little gross downstream in stone, brick or concrete drunk, acquisitions alone moved water by gravity; Slope gradient, fast flow. Most of the buildings were buried under the ground and followed in the form of terrain; Blocking peaks were blocked or in less time, tunnels were made through tunnels. Where the interiors were intercepted in the valleys or low-lying areas, the conduit was taken to bridgework, or its material was filled with high-pressure lead, ceramic or stone pipes and passed through it. Most integrated systems include salutation tanks, which help to reduce waste from water. Slices and castella aquae controlled supplies at individual locations. In towns and cities, the run-off water from aqueducts scoured the drains and sewers.
