Drilling long-lasting deep water wells in the rural areas of Uganda requires professional capacity, mobilization of the community, the use of high standard drilling tools and borehole installation materials, proper planning regarding timing, accessibility and geology, and years of experience in Africa.. This is why TGS Water will be your preferred drilling contractor.
The first step of a successful drilling program is a proper hydrogeological and geophysical survey to determine the best drilling site. The approaches developed by TGS water Ltd will significantly increase the success rates of your projects. The company’s large borehole database and groundwater potential maps will already help to assess the groundwater potential in your area of operation. The geophysical survey is done by means of resistivity measurements in the form of profiles and vertical electrical soundings (VESes) with the use of an ABEM SAS 1000 terrameter.
Deep boreholes are cost-efficient in areas where there is no shallow borehole or protected spring potential. Borehole drilling activities include surveying, drilling, and test pumping, casting and installing the borehole with a hand pump.
