Tijdens de 18de en 19de eeuw stonden er dertig pompen verspreid in de Vesting. Onder de opbouw van de pomp bevond zich een gemetselde put die tot ongeveer 3 meter diepte in de watervoerende zand- lagen reikte. In 1904 werd begonnen met de aanleg van een waterleiding. Het gemeentebestuur besloot in 1919 om de inmiddels overbodig geworden stadspompen te laten verwijderen.

(English translation:)

During the 18th and 19th centuries, thirty pumps were scattered throughout the Fortress. Underneath the superstructure of the pump was a masonry pit that reached about 3 meters deep into the aquifer sand layers. In 1904 the construction of a water main was started. The municipal council decided in 1919 to have the city pumps, which had now become redundant. removed.
