Harnessing the wind to raise water up out of the ground


Windmills used a simple suction pump to raise water up out of shallow wells. They were used to supply water for households and to supply livestock with water. Windmills were not common in Utah and Idaho but there were some.

Early windmills were mostly home made. Note that the legs are made of poles. Later windmills were factory made and had steel frameworks.
