Alex went to Nawandyo B village to supervise the process of borehole pump testing, casting and installation. During this process, a borehole is pumped for a minimum of 3 hours to let out any dirt and make sure the water is clear before the borehole installation. At the end of three hours of pumping, if water has failed to clear then blowing has to continue for more time until it clears and a water sample must be taken for lab testing. On a good note, the water in this new borehole from Nawandyo cleared after the 3 hours of pump testing. The static water level was at 11.0M and the dynamic water level was at 16.76M, this is determined after the 3 hours of pumping. The pumping was then stopped and the water recovery was also determined and It was got at 14.25M after 25 minutes of waiting for the borehole to rest. It was also found out that this borehole has a very good recovery rate estimated at 92.2% meaning that the borehole qualifies for installation and also is assumed to handle even long dry seasons serving the community with clean water. Any borehole above 65% water recovery qualifies for installation. This borehole will be installed with 8 stainless pipes and this is known after determining the recovery rate. More work on this borehole will continue the following day with casting and installing the pipes and pump head.
