The Aqueduct System

:

As the population of the City increased, the well water became polluted and the supply was insufficient. The creation of the Aqueduct systems allowed millions of gallons of relatively clean water to be delivered to the city which allowed the city to expand far beyond what it would have been able to without the system.
