If it is just a single light have you considered solar? Maybe with a remote solar collector if needed. The newer lights a worlds better than the ones available just a few years ago.

comment Can using two hoses deliver more water?
Have you inquired at a local pool supply store. In my area it isn't uncommon for tanker trucks full of water to fill pools. Some companies specialize in it. They fill pools, hose down construction sites to control dust and other commercial uses.
