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.
BushProof is completing a drilling campaign in Boeny region, West of Madagascar.
Client : Ministry of Water and Unicef
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)

One of our team has just moved 50 tons of material with a beacher to reach Berafia Island in the North-West of Madagascar. They are starting the construction of a small pumping water supply system for a coastal village. Client : Association Ranomamy, France
A new project has just been completed in Ambohimahavelona (Toliara). A shallow drilled well allows to get the water flowing from karstic springs in a small alluvial valley acting as underground storage. The well, built for NGO HAMAP and The Ministry of Water will feed the projected water supply of Ambohimahavelona.
Construction of the water supply system of Fanjakana. This one will feed more than 3’000 people.

This well will be used for a new water supply system to be built in Fanjakana, SW of Madagascar. Client : Ministry of Water and UNICEF
We had 16 motivated participants attending from countries including Zambia, Ethiopia, Germany and Kenya. Dates for the next training in March will be published soon.
One of our rig is working on different site in the west of Madagascar at the moment. Roads are not always good and any move of the material takes lot of time. Our teams are used to work in those conditions.
BushProof has just finished two surveys along the North-West coast of Madagascar and on the Mitsio island. The aim of these surveys was the visit of remote villages to propose and design accurate water supply solution or improve existing ones. Those surveys have been done for NGO Ranomamy and GRET.
