The great Aqua Augusta aqueduct served the Naples Bay area with fresh water during the time of the Roman Empire. There are very prominent features of the Aqua Augusta, some that are truly unique when considering other great aqueducts in the Roman Empire. Each one of these features was engineered to provide water to the public for various uses. The structures include tunnels (with two major types of construction), hydraulic chutes, arcades (one to an island), baths (located along a well-travelled road), and storage reservoirs. Also, there is the epigraph discovered at the water source. Important villas that may have influenced the alignment of the aqueduct are also discussed.
