aqueducts (water distribution structures, <hydraulic structures by function>, ... Built Environment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Man-made conduits for carrying water over long distances, usually by means of gravity, particularly structures that include channels and elevated sections on bridgelike structures, optimized by the Romans and based on inventions of earlier cultures. The term derives from Latin aqua, meaning "water," and ducere, meaning "to lead." In modern engineering, the term refers to any system of pipes, ditches, canals, tunnels, and supporting structures used to convey water from its source to its main distribution point.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Wordt gebruikt voor kunstmatige waterwegen om water over lange afstanden te vervoeren, meestal met behulp van de zwaartekracht; wordt ook gebruikt voor brugachtige bouwwerken die een waterweg of kanaal over een dal, een rivier of een ander obstakel heenvoeren. 
German ..... Von Menschenhand geschaffenes Leitungssystem, um Wasser über weite Entfernungen transportieren zu können, in der Regel mithilfe der Schwerkraft, insbesondere durch Bauwerke, die auch Kanäle und erhöhte Abschnitte mit brückenähnlichen Segmenten umfassen. Dieses Verfahren wurde von den Römern durch Adaption von Techniken aus früheren Kulturen perfektioniert. Die Bezeichnung ist ein Kompositum aus den lateinische Wörtern "aqua" (Wasser) und "ducere" (führen/leiten). (Im modernen Ingenieurwesen sind diesem Begriff jedwedes System aus Röhren, Gräben, Kanälen und Tunnel samt deren tragenden Strukturen subsumiert, in denen Trinkwasser von der Quelle zur Entnahmestelle geleitet wird.) 
Spanish ..... Canal de agua artificial que transporta agua a través de largas distancias, generalmente por medio de la gravedad; y también estructura semejante a un puente que transporta el canal o los canales sobre un valle, río u otro obstáculo.
