The Archimedes screw , also known as Archimedes' screw, the Archimedean screw or the screwpump is a machine historically used for transferring water from a low-lying body of water into irrigation ditches.
A screwlike device invented by Greek mathematician Archimedes, ca. 200 BCE, which when twisted inside a cylinder, raises water from a lower level to a higher level, allowing irrigation of fields

Archimedes Screw Pump patent-rev
After Naturalist Christopher Cook of the Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center finished his description of the pump used to remove water in the salt ponds, he wondered about the patent history of this ancient technology.
an archimedes screw, very old way of pumping the salt water from one pond to the next -- wind turns the windmill & an attached helix-shaped screw, which lifts the water up the pipe & into the next pond.
