BushProof participated in an extensive assessment looking at the social and technical aspects of implementation of reverse osmosis desalinisation units in different villages along the south-west coast of Madagascar in the Toliary region. The assessment was done alongside our partner Elemental Water Makers, and represents an option to provide freshwater to coastal villages in this region.
BushProof’s workshop is building 350 Canzee handpumps for MEDAIR’s programme implemented in the North-East of Madagascar. Delivery is being made in three phases between September 2014 and June 2015.
One of BushProof drilling teams drilled four pumping wells in the centre of Antananarivo to treat a plume of fuel found to be contaminating the aquifer from a leaking tank at a service station. The contaminated groundwater will be treated after pumping and re-injected into the aquifer.
One of our team is drilling in a remote area of the South-West of the island at the moment. Machines and crew are working hard building 70-100m deep water wells.
BushProof is supervising the construction of an alternative biological water treatment system to treat the discharge of a vanilla treatment plant near Sambava (North-East of Madagascar). Two basins are lined with membrane and geotextile, then filled with gravel and aquatic plants. Our team is still on site.
We have just completed a session of our Technical Training in Water and Sanitation Infrastructure. We had seven participants from various countries, including South-Sudan, Zimbabwe, Yemen and Madagascar. The next training will be held in March 2015.
BushProof has just completed a 7-day WASH training in Juba, South Sudan. The training was run for 20 participants coming from two NGOs – Polish Humanitarian Action (PAH) and Solidarités International.
One of our drilling rigs was mobilized on the west coast of Madagascar for drilling and installation of hand pumps in remote villages in the region of Morondava.
BushProof just completed the construction of a solar-powered water supply pumping system for the distribution of 100 m3 per day in a commune in south-eastern Madagascar. The water is rich in iron, so a treatment system using aeration and filtration has been set up which can treat 10 m3 per hour.
We have just started drilling with our new rig in the West. Great machine! We will stay 02 months and then continue along the route to Morondava for other borehole installations.
