Notes
Alex went back for the completion of borehole installation in lower Nabituluntu village. This follows the unfinished work the previous day of water failing to clear and installing of pipes could not take place. They had to continue pumping out the water so that it could clear before installing the pipes. It’s DWD numbers is 51902. Unfortunately, this borehole was not installed because the water failed to clear after more than 9 hours of blowing. It was concluded that the compressor will be recalled back to blow out the second time to see if it can be able to clear. The water remained very dirty and brown. If it still fails, then the work will be redone from the beginning drilling again.
