Success! Fresh Water in Haiti

On 2012/04/19, in Uncategorized, by waterhaiti

After already spending $70,000 on previous drilling attempts, a client contacted Northwater International to perform a 3-day hydrogeologic investigation and geophysics survey.   The team mobilized last fall to Northwest Haiti to find fresh water for the community.  The previous attempts had resulted in dry boreholes or wells that were brackish.   The teams survey report provided recommendations to avoid areas previously targeted and instead to drill a new area slightly to the west.

As result, a successful well, with fresh and clean water, was completed for the benefit of the local residents and a further waste of effort and money was prevented.
