yes, it is used for parts of aqueducts (most ancient aqueducts aren't
complete any more), in some cases there might even be 2 aqueducts in the
same piece of relic, e.g. here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aqua_Anio_Novus
The Anio Novus was running the last 13 kilometers on top of the structure
of Acqua Claudia.

If you're coming to Rome, be sure to visit the "park of aqueducts", or
"park of the 7 aqueducts" ;-)
