At #2 we attempted to drill for water, as the only water supply is a weak natural spring - and what a waste of time and money that was!
local man had assured us that water was at 12 m depth at location X
so drilling went ahead: 12m - nothing, 15-18-21m - nothing, down to
31m and still nothing, which is where Ibraheem stopped
So, we plan to build a very large water tank,
20-30,000 litres, to be filled automatically by the little spring
which, when it runs, gives about 1,000 l/24hr, the overflow to be led
to the house, or to the vegetable garden, or both.
would be tedious, we could simply bring water in containers from #35
the spring is not running.
This job could be combined with exchanging
batteries and so become part of routine visits to #35.
already has plastic water tanks with a combined capacity of 3,000
Also, both at #2
we plan to collect rainwater in large tanks, to be used for
irrigation and cleaning.
