Herod’s aqueduct was several miles long, bringing water to Caesarea from springs at the foot of Mount Carmel. For much of the distance, the water channel rests on a seemingly endless procession of arches. The plastered structure on the arches contains channels about 16 inches wide and 30 inches deep, in which the water flowed. It took amazing skill to build this long channel, beginning at the proper height so the water was still flowing when it reached the end. It took enormous wealth to pay the labor force needed to accomplish projects like this one. Caesarea was the key to Herod’s prosperity.
