Conservation of the 2nd-Century Gadara Aqueduct
This project involves the documentation of the aqueduct and its three tunnels and the development of a conservation plan.
In its time, the aqueduct delivered water several kilometers from an ancient lake in modern-day Syria to ancient Gadara—one of the ten cities of the Roman Imperial Decapolis. [Photo credit: Paul Fischer]
