Ws Notes
David,Steven along with zackAbney were in Belinda village. There intention of going there was to carry out the process of the borehole blowing as pump testing. That was done because the borehole had stayed for so long without the community members using it. Therefore David ,Steven and zack as they were at the borehole promise,they started on the generator which was connected to the water pump . They connected the generator along with the water pump which was inside the borehole. Because they wanted to let the dirty water out of the borehole. The process of blowing the borehole took the Kibo staff 3hours. But before even making it three hours the water had already cleared up. And it was ready for human consumption. Also on the side of pump testing process ,they did it because they wanted to know how long was the water which they had blew out of the borehole take to recover back . However they noted that it was 15 jerrycans in 8 minutes. Which was better on the side of the Kibo staff and the entire village. The Kibo staff carried out the two above mentioned process because it was extremely important due to the borehole water formation . In general according to the hygiene and sanitation status of the entire village was good .Except for the few homes which had the need to improve on their hand washing stations. 
Repair Notes
The chairman of the borehole was very much concerned and hard working
