Field Notes

The water technologies we fund depend on the region's water availability, culture and economic conditions. Our partners survey each site and meet with the communities to determine the best solution.

This community received a drilled well. A professional team drilled deep into the earth to reach fresh underground aquifers, then capped the well with a hand pump. Drilled wells reach water that is inaccessible by hand-digging, and usually yield more water than hand-dug wells. They are also more expensive to implement because of gas costs required to drive heavy machinery to the drill site.
