aqueduct/sanitary sewers (sewer)
Explanation: If the source word aqueduct, the trager, sorry, is aqueduct, a specific kynd of water supply.
Aqueduct: Conduit built to carry water from its source to a main distribution point.
aq·ue·duct (ăk'wĭ-dŭkt') n. A pipe or channel designed to transport water from a remote source, usually by gravity.
A bridgelike structure supporting a conduit or canal passing over a river or low ground. http://www.answers.com/topic/aqueduct
Sanitary Sewage: Liquid and water-carried human and domestic wastes from buildings, exclusive of ground, storm and surface water.
I understand sanitary refers to sanitary sewers, as explained:
Sanitary Sewers: In a separated system, pipes that carry only domestic or commercial sanitary sewage as opposed to rainwater runoff.
Sewer: A pipe or conduit that carries wastewater, either sanitary sewage or storm or surface water runoff, or both.
I think according to the context you can choose the most adequate expression. http://www.bwsc.org/water_sewer_sys/glossary.htm http://www.cleanwateratlanta.org/Glossary/ www.ted.europa.eu/udl?uri=TED:NOTICE:172662-2006:TEXT:EN:HT...
