Floating fields
Floating fields
The inca built their farming fields on raised platforms, as flooding was a problem. They had an nifty irrigation system where they would pump the water from the flooded basin up to the fields (so they could regulate the watering). They used bridges like the ones depicted here to get from one platform to the next.
Inside the bin, the downpipe discharges rainwater from the roof and a float switch turns on a submersible pump, sending the rainwater out through the irrigation pipe.
