would a windmill generating a pump be a feasable method of helping to aerate a pond?

The interesting tidbit to share is that for ponds, he tries to shape the ponds to go lengthwise with the wind. And he tries to get the wind to blow against the pond surface as much as possible. This makes for good air exchange in the water so the water can support more life. So if the wind blows from the east to the west, he will create a long, skinny pond that runs in an east west direction. And he will try to reduce berms/huglekulture/trees at the ends.
