Engineering an Empire - Greece, Part 3/5

How do you ensure a steady supply of drinking water to a city in the dry, arid, Mediterranean Climate? How do you get water from the spring located on the other side of a mountain to your city?

Watch Polycrates solve the problem of providing the city of Samos with water in part three of this five part series.
