Whilst the modern drainage systems used in the 21st Century are very different, the first drainage system was established by the Etruscans in Rome.
Why is drainage so important?
Drainage is important, because without it, we would be more prone to flooding, which would cause problems for buildings, as well as land. Not only that, but if waste is allowed to build up, bacteria will thrive which in turn increases the potential for diseases to spread.
