Notes
Alex took the surveyor to the community to carry out the borehole survey of the village. The process of surveying started at 12:30pm and got done at 4pm. The surveyor had two points that he selected and he was going to make a final decision of which point would be the best and could be considered to be drilled. The community is happy about the points selected and are all awaiting the final decision from the surveyor. All the people were present from the beginning till the end of the process. Every body was happy on seeing how the surveying is done.
