On our acreage in Iowa, we had a large one that was located at the top of a hill and was fed by a windmill pump at the well at the bottom of the hill.

The term may have been associated with farm houses, which typically had a cistern located under the house to store rainwater for drinking, cooking and other purposes. Our farm in the 1950's had one built by the original owner in 1898. Its use had been discontinued years before we came to the farm, after a water line was installed to connect the windmill and well to the house.
