Two aqueducts and 6000m3 of running water. Vorgium (now Carhaix), was fortunate to have an aqueduct, mainly underground, that supplied 6000m3 of water per day. In the 3rd century AD, the town took great pride in having running water…In fact, the aqueduct paralleled an older aqueduct that fed the town's water supply during the 2nd century. But its low output couldn't meet the needs of the town, and a second underground channel (27km long), was built during the next century. It captured the spring water at its source high on the hilltops above Paule and Glomel, at an altitude superior to Carhaix.
