The Eifel aqueduct is a very important and valuable archaeological site,
particularly for the study of Roman surveying, organizational ability, and
engineering know-how (see the drawing for its route (red) >>>).
There were four major areas of springs
for this aqueduct:
* Grüner Pütz (Green plaster) between Nettersheim
* Klausbrunnen (Klaus fountain) near Mechernich
An area of springs in Mechernich-Urfey
* The Hausener Benden in Mechernich-Eiserfey.
CA Eick was the discoverer of the farthest source from Cologne at Grüner
Pütz near Nettersheim (in 1867; right and below). Information found at Wikipedia.

fortress at Saalburg (near Bad Homburg). >>>
