RANOWASH project just started !

BushProof is currently conducting field surveys under the RANOWASH project. This $ 30 million USAID-funded project is being implemented by a consortium formed by CARE, CRS, WaterAid, BushProof and Sandandrano. For the next five years we will work on the implementation of water supply systems in remote areas of Atsinanana, V7V and Aloatra-Mangoro regions. Within this program, we wish to contribute to improve the technical approaches traditionally followed by the WASH sector.

Mining for water in the South

BushProof is working alongside with Primary Water Technologies (PWT) and Lanoé Forages on an innovative exploration and water prodution project fund by UNICEF in the South of Madagascar. An international team is mobilized (USA, Russia, Germany, Madagascar, Switzerland) with modern exploration means (radiometrics and passive seismic) allowing to “mine for water”. The objective is to locate and tap upwelling of primary water through deep fractured zone.

Prospection in perched aquifers in southern Madagascar

BushProof is actually working on the construction of shallow waterpoints exploiting groundwater of perched aquifers in the south of Madagascar. The project aims to improve access to drinking water as well as to provide water for irrigation in the region. We are trying to understand the extent of all shallow perched aquifers in the region and look at the feasibility of abstracting water from manually drilled water wells. Client : CARE, financed by ECHO

Well inspection service

BushProof now own a borehole inspection camera and proposes inspection service. The camera allows inspection of well until a depth of 100m and is easily movable in the field.

Our last client requesting this service wanted a complete evaluation of its two very productive water wells, including camera inspection, pumping test, efficiency and influence observation. Client : OSO Farming – LGA, Ambilobe, north of Madagascar
