Early Water Delivery Solutions in Rome

Early Water Delivery Solutions in RomeEarly Water Delivery Solutions Rome 12051712.jpg Aqua Anio Vetus, the first raised aqueduct founded in Rome, started providing the many people living in the hills with water in 273 BC, though they had depended on natural springs up until then. Outside of these aqueducts and springs, wells and rainwater-collecting cisterns were the sole technologies readily available at the time to supply water to areas of greater elevation. From the beginning of the sixteenth century, water was routed to Pincian Hill by using the underground channel of Acqua Vergine. The aqueduct’s channel was made reachable by pozzi, or manholes, that were placed along its length when it was first built. Although they were initially planned to make it possible to support the aqueduct, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi began using the manholes to accumulate water from the channel, commencing when he acquired the property in 1543. He didn’t get an adequate amount water from the cistern that he had established on his property to gather rainwater. By using an orifice to the aqueduct that ran under his property, he was able to satisfy his water wants.

California's Outdoor Garden Fountain Study and Results

California's Outdoor Garden Fountain Study Results 39059662900382620.jpg California's Outdoor Garden Fountain Study and Results The first implementation of a sugary drinks tax in the USA came in February 2014, when it was approved by the city of Berkley, California. The tax is supposed to lower sugary drink intake and improve the consumption of healthier drinks, including water from fountains. First, the city conducted an analysis to evaluate whether citizens had proper access to working drinking water fountains. Using information amassed by a mobile GPS app, experts were able to identify the condition of active water fountains in Berkley. This information was cross-referenced with demographic information on race and income acquired from the US Census Community Study database. Comparisons were made between the location and demographic data, uncovering whether class differences affected access to clean, working water fountains. The study was able to identify the demographics of areas with water fountains, also observing whether the state of the fountains was better or worse in lower class neighborhoods. Most of the water fountains were unclean or slow or stopped up, despite the fact that a lot of fountains worked.
