Deep well construction - Gouye-Ndiogou, Senegal
The project managers from “Help for Africa – Water for Senegal e.V.” have been able to locate very dry and water-needy areas in the Diourbel region around Dakar. In this region, 27 villages with approx. 15,000 residents can be found. Many village residents have had to leave their villages in the last years because of the lack of water. The younger generation is moving because they no longer see any real prospects – the villages are slowly but surely “bleeding out”.
To actively work to reverse the water shortage, TOOLS FOR LIFE and “Help for Africa – Water for Senegal e.V.” decided on and implemented a deep well construction. With special drilling units, a depth of approx. 120 meters was drilled. Using a diesel power generator the water was transported to an approx. 25-meter high water tower and there, with the help of a pressure booster system, pumped into the supply pipelines from where it was then distributed to the villages.
