Springs of water

The family farm has its own source of spring water. I don't know all the details of the water system, but here are a few pictures.

One of the last memories I have of my grandfather is when he was in the hospital giving my uncle instructions about when and how to run the water pump.

From left to right. 1) The pump house over the spring on the side of the hill—it was too wet to wade through the brush to get a closer look. 2) The overflow below the pump house next to the road. Fresh spring water pours out of here year round. People often stop and fill up water containers. Somebody put the two little angels there. 3) The back of the other pump house up by the main house. The back entrance of the main house is in the background, and the side of the garage is to the right. 4) Inside the pump house.
