Developing groundwater: A guide for rural water supply


This is the most complete introduction available on techniques for developing groundwater for rural water supplies in developing countries. It provides information on simple, effective techniques for siting wells and boreholes, assessing the sustainability of sources, constructing and testing the yield of boreholes and wells, and monitoring groundwater quality. The authors set the technical aspects of rural water supply firmly in their socio-economic context, so that readers will take proper account of community concerns as well as purely engineering questions. With the publication of Developing Groundwater, information on key techniques for finding and exploiting groundwater will be widely available for the first time. Highly illustrated, and written by acknowledged experts with extensive international experience, the book is specifically designed and developed to meet the needs of rural water supply project staff in developing countries. This book costs £19.95. A flyer for the book is attached.
