The Decapolis city of Gerasa lies in northern Jordan. This interdisciplinary study investigates the components of the water management system servicing the city and its hinterland over an eight-century period through a detailed analysis of archaeological evidence from multiple sources. The study reveals evidence of aqueduct networks supplying rural and urban consumers from proximal spring sources and makes the first detailed examination of the complex intramural network. The earliest aqueduct to the city is dated to the first century AD. The system was prone to seismic damage, which contributed to changes to the urban network in the Byzantine period.
