crofta
 n.— «Repairs will soon be underway to the antiquated water system. One of the old crofta’s, as they’re called, will be replaced with a more modern filtration system like the one in Evansville. But replacing another crofta or repairs to towers and other lines, will most likely mean another increase on top of this one, if it passes.» —“Clean Mt. Vernon Water, A Costly Luxury” by Ben Jackey in Mt. Vernon WFIE-TV (Evansville, Ind.) Mar. 15, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
