Shallow Well Drilling

Where ground water is located within 200 feet of the ground surface, Lifewater trains community leaders on all aspects of shallow well drilling, including:

  • locating the drilling site
  • equipment operation and maintenance
  • logging the borehole
  • setting the hand pump with a sanitary seal
  • well disinfection

As a part of programs, Lifewater provides drilling equipment to qualified communities and provides ongoing trainings so they become experts in the field.
