  • How did the nature of the water supply itself condition the strategy this society chose?
  • What resources, labor, and materials were required to build and maintain the tools or techniques required by the strategy?
  • What side effects or potential problems arose as this society developed, established, expanded, or maintained this water supply strategy?
