El Acueducto se encuentra actualmente medio cubierto de arena. La historia cuenta que el acueducto sirvió para el transporte agua de un manantial que se encuentra a 6 kilómetros de la ciudad. Los restos de dos conductos se pueden ver actualmente.

Caesarea Maritima - The Aqueduct, which provided an abundant supply of water, was built in the Herodian period; it was later repaired & enlarged to a double channel when the city grew. The upper aqueduct begins at the springs located some nine kilometers northeast of Caesarea, at the foot of Mt. Carmel. It was constructed with considerable engineering know-how, ensuring the flow of water, by gravity, from the springs to the city. In some portions, the aqueduct was supported by rows of arches
