Inspection of 14 Wells Complete

Oct 18, 2021 | Malawi, News & Events, Travel

Inspection has been completed by our contractors in the field in Malawi! Kibbutz Group’s water quality, pumping, and down-the-hole camera experts have completed their tests and data collection on all fourteen sites in Liti and Nkagula. Kibbutz Group has determined the repairs required on the wells, ranging from replacement of common parts for maintenance and major well systems.

Down-the-hole camera inspection

Rehabilitation is underway, with almost all sites having centralizers, o-rings, double end sockets, and foot valves replaced. Two wells with serious issues were identified, one requiring a new pumping system and another with almost a complete blockage. These wells are currently being repaired in the field. 

VIP, our partner NGO, has been holding community meetings in Liti and Nkagula. These meetings serve to communicate well downtimes, testing results, and possibilities for well rehabilitation. EWB-UD’s partnership with Liti and Nkagula, VIP, and Kibbutz Group has continued to grow during this remote implementation.
