How to find the longest water pipe
Long water pipes can have a huge capacity, with many of the world’s longest running water pipes spanning a few thousand feet (half a kilometer).
However, many of these pipes are of the more common diameter of 6 feet (1.2 meters).
A number of the longest, longest-running pipes are located in the United States, including the US’ longest water system, the Hoover Dam.
Here, we’ll explore how to find a pipe that can hold more than 100,000 gallons (3.7 million liters) of water and find out which one is the longest.
We’ll also find out if the longest pipe in the US is in any way related to the Hoover’s original design, which is thought to have been built in 1911.

The longest water-carrying bridge in Europe is the span of the Mitteilungen, which spans 810 meters (2,062 feet) from the Eifel Tower in Berlin, Germany.
The length of the Einflussersee, or Mitte-Hellerstädt, the world record-holding bridge in the Moselle River, is 1,639 meters (5,543 feet).

A study in the journal Nature found that in 2015, just over half the world was facing water shortages that would kill an estimated one-third of its inhabitants.
Water is also the main driver of biodiversity, according to the UN.
The water cycle is the main source of oxygen for plants and animals, and is also key to the Earth’s ability to sustain life.
According to the US Geological Survey, about half of all species on Earth rely on the water cycle for their survival.

The study found that cities with more than five million people are travelling further with a pipe than the average person and that people traveling more than a kilometre (0.9 miles) travel longer distance with a similar amount of water.
In some parts of the country, people are traveling more distance with only a single pipe than with two.
People travel further with water pipes that have a capacity of up to 1.8 million litters (3 million gallons) per kilometer (1,800 miles) or more, compared to a pipe with capacity of 1 million litrs (1 million gallons).

Although water pipes have improved greatly over the past half-century, they are still not nearly as common as they once were.
The authors of the study said that, in the long term, they expect that they will be able to build and maintain many new pipe structures over the next few centuries.
They estimate that there will be between 12 and 20 billion water pipes in the world by then, which would be about the same size as the population of China.
6/9 A water pipe could last for millions of yearsA new study has found that even after humans leave the Earth, water can still provide the basic energy that drives the evolution of plants and other life.
Specifically, it could support the development of plants that are up to 10 million years old, scientists said.
This is because in the distant past, water was the dominant form of power for life on the planet, support for which has been essential for the survival of all living things.
However, the researchers added that as the Earth ages and its ecosystems change, water may become less of a dominant form.
They speculate that this change could have major consequences for the energy balance of the planet.
7/9 As our planet ages, some of the water that once flowed on land could be lost foreverScientists have long speculated that the ocean could be losing some of its water-bearing material as the planet ages.
But a new analysis of ancient sediment cores from the Ganges and Yamuna rivers in the southern Indian state of Madhya Pradesh suggested that this process may not be taking place.
The sediments reveal that, approximately 4.5 billion years
