Here are some more aqueducts.
One of special note being the Pont du Gard.



The Pont du Gard is an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge built in the first century AD to carry water over 50 km to the Roman colony of Nemausus. It crosses the river Gardon near the town of Vers-Pont-du-Gard in southern France. Wikipedia.

Here are several others not in as good a condition that possibly need repair.

The need of water on tap for drinking and cooking means that it has to be stored in a container above ground in order to get delivery to the tap via gravitation.

Obtaining water via Desalination.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Desalination is the process by which the dissolved mineral salts in water are removed.
Currently, this process, applied to seawater, is one of the most used to obtain fresh water for human consumption or agricultural purposes. Google.

This method is commonly used when there are no rivers to obtain fresh water, and where only seawater can be sourced.

Minor action but important - carrying your own water bottles or canteen. For example, tap water in the UK is perfect to drink, but too many people buy bottled water and discard plastic waste, still now. I don't understand that at all!

Desalination of seawater


I am surprised to see some of those stamps goes back to 1975. Maybe earlier than that which doesn't say on the stamp? Interesting to know that side of history on stamps. Thank you for sharing.

You may need a TV licence to view this !!!!

For many, water on tap is a luxury.

Natural springs.
~~~~~~~~~~~

There are many stamps from Nevis and Saint Kitts that depict a medicinal spring, here are some examples from these volcanic Islands........





Watch "Nevis Hot Springs" on YouTube
https://youtube.com/watch?v=IT4eiqvZk_g

However there are many other springs that contain medicinal properties due to their mineral content.

Below you will see some other variations of springs of the world as seen on stamps............







Unfortunately no postage stamps have been produced relating to British spring waters but many do exist........ Here is just one of them.

A well-known spring water in Britain is located in the town of Buxton in Derbyshire.

St Ann's Well (Buxton) - Wikipedia
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_...ell_(Buxton)

Bottled water from this spring is available and can be purchased.

Wherever the Ancient Roman had settled, they were keen to find hot-spring (or made a settlement where hot-spring existed?) and made nice bathhouses. So, no wonder the St. Ann's Well has its roots from Roman era, so as this stamp from France. Let's hope a stamp will be issued on that historical Spa town. Icelandic stamp from 1989 shows wonder of nature graphically beautiful, and great to see Saint Kitts & Nevis's spring goddess stamps.
