The only water source of these people is a large diameter well built directly on the beach, 4 km far from the village. They can only get brackish water floating on sea water. Seen in Androy (extreme south of Madagascar) during a survey done for CARE International.

Next Training session in September 2016 !

The next one-week Technical Training in Water & Sanitation Infrastructure will be held from 12 – 17 September 2016 in Madagascar.

The training is intense and is given through a range of practical and theoretical sessions. While several theoretical courses are available, practical hands-on field experience is difficult to obtain. The BushProof training therefore focuses heavily on practical which include the following:

  • Water well design, including sizing of screen and gravel pack
  • Manual drilling using BushProof technique
  • Field surveying and measurement to set up a gravity flow water supply & a pumping system
  • Chlorine & alum jar tests
  • Biosand filter construction
  • Latrine dome slab construction
  • Water testing (chemical, physical, bacteriological)

More information is available in the course overview document available here: http://www.bushproof.com/products/trainings/water-sanitation-infrastructure/
