- n. A structure somewhat like a windmill for pumping water, either for drainage or for irrigation
Sorry, no etymologies found.
There is a legitimate possibility of injury here, presumably, the wind rights restriction would prevent the installation of a windpump, which, while less common in the days of broader electrical availability, are certainly still used.
It is important to involve local users of the windpump in the workshop.
This is not a manual which teaches the trainer the theory and practice of windpump construction.
If possible, include several people from the area, where the windpump will be and from the area where the training will take place if the locations are not the same.
