Ask the Question:

1. What is a chorobates?

Is a tool used to measure a slightly sloping line that connects the water source in the city

2. Why is it used?
engineers can figure out where the water needs to flow below ground in tunnels, on the surface in covered trenches or in pressurized pipes, or above ground on walls or arcades.

3. What are the parts of an aqueduct?


4. When should you build a trench?

Because The Trenches are used when the aqueduct follows the contours of the land

5. Under what conditions should you build one?

Sometimes, aqueduct engineers should carve a tunnel through a mountain rather than build a trench around one.

6. Why do you need to build shafts?

When not too deep, shafts are dug down vertically from above to intersect with the proposed path of the tunnel.

7. When will you need to use pressurized pipes?

When faced with a deep valley

8. What are they made of?

The pipes are usually built of lead


9. When will you have to build walls?

When aqueduct engineers have to cross shallow depressions in the landscape, they should build the aqueduct on a wall

10. What disadvantages are there to building these?

walls can impede the natural flow of water and people.

11. When should you build an arcade?

When the aqueduct must flow higher than about five feet

12. What are the advantages of building them?

The arched arcades require less material than walls and don't interfere with the passage of water or people through the environment.
