drilling waterDuring the 2013 E.C, the WASH development component of the Kunzila ILMWA project supported the development of 88 traditional shallow wells, 2 manual tube wells, 900 HDP pipes, 6 reservoirs; upgrading of 70 traditional shallow wells; and installation of 4 pumps in the KILMWA project sites. Also a total of 31 springs, shallow & hand dug wells fitted with pumps were rehabilitated.

To improve communities’ access to drinking water supply, the project supported the drilling of four boreholes at different sites. It was noted that two of the boreholes were successful at 130 m depth and with a minimum water yield capacity of 25 L/sec while the other two at Sankira kebele couldn’t yield water even at depths of 260m and 278.5 meters, and were thus abandoned.
