Borehole Drilling In Mutare and The 10 Facts About Boreholes

Drilled Boreholes are vital to achieving universal, safe drinking water and meeting Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6.1, particularly in, Zimbabwe, Mutare. 

Poor quality siting, borehole design, drilling and completion lead to premature failure of the water supply. Borehole Drilling in Mutare through Mutare Boreholes, a multi-stakeholder initiative has endeavoured to raise the professionalism of borehole drilling and its management in Manicaland Province. 

The 10 Facts About Boreholes:

 1. WHAT IS A BOREHOLE? A borehole can be described as any narrow or small-bore vertical or horizontal shaft drilled into the ground for the extraction of water, oil, gas or minerals.

2. REGULAR WATER TESTING: Usually water extracted from a borehole is of good quality but should always be tested in a laboratory first to determine its suitability and safety. Sometimes groundwater can contain contaminants or minerals at higher levels than are safe for drinking or for commercial or process applications, and water treatment may be required.

You should always have your borehole water regularly tested in a laboratory to ensure it is safe to use and drink.

3. KEEP YOUR MAINS WATER CONNECTION: If you have a private supply from a water borehole, that doesn’t mean you can’t stay connected to the mains water supply. In fact, it’s usually best to stay connected and simply turn the mains supply off at the stopcock so that you can switch it on and off as required.

4. EXCELLENT RETURN ON INVESTMENT: If you’re a large water user such as a business, then you can save considerable sums on your water bills by using a private supply or water borehole. Some large users of water, like dairy farms, manufacturing plants, power stations, and food and beverage producers, can find that the investment in a borehole supply pays for itself very quickly. Users in geographically remote locations might also find it’s more cost-effective to drill a borehole than pay for miles of water pipe to be laid to connect you to the mains.

5. SHARING WATER BOREHOLES: It’s also possible to share water from a borehole between two or more properties. Getting together with your neighbours can cut the cost of drilling a borehole too.

6. QUICK TO INSTALL: Water boreholes can usually be drilled in as little as two or three days, depending on the type of rock you have to drill through. Once drilled, a properly constructed and well-maintained water well can last for generations.

7. GEOLOGICAL SURVEYS: Specialist Geological Surveys or Borehole Siting are an excellent way of identifying where on your land water is most likely to be found, given the surrounding geology.

8. WATER STORAGE TANKS: You don’t always need water storage tanks if you are drilling a borehole or water well. Whether you need a tank will depend on how much water you’re using and how much is available underground.

9. BOREHOLE WATER TREATMENT: Booster pumps, filtration systems, disinfection and water treatment plant and can be added to your borehole extraction system if you struggle with low pressure, poor or fluctuating water quality, or higher than acceptable levels of contamination. If you’re using your borehole water to irrigate land rather than for drinking purposes, you may not need to add infiltration.

10. UNOBTRUSIVE: Once a water borehole has been drilled and set up it can be very unobtrusive. The only visible aspect of a borehole well is usually a single manhole cover capping the mouth of the well and some pipework.
