Caprontos has built a rather nice aqueduct to deliver elevated water:

And he has done so, using this new item that is used to elevate water:

So, why mess with water anyway? few reasons, first, its nice :) second, there's a new food item, sugar canes, that require water to be in a 2 cell distance from it in order to grow. the sugar cane is used to make sugar canes beer and cakes which will give an happiness boost.

Hmm, the new mill animation (from v9) for flour looks like it is moving because of water,does that mean in the future, we will need to build the mills on small water canals, so they get maybe speed boost for making flour, or something similer?

Really cool! Opens up the possibility for desert maps to have no water until you get deep underground!
