Well Drilling

Streamlining Well Drilling

We have made several revisions to our new drilling rig in the last couple of months, working out the bugs in our system so we can drill wells deeper, faster, and with a smaller work crew than we could previously.  We have developed a more mechanized rig because we have found that we cannot find reliable labor power in the communities to help us drill with our more labor intensive techniques.  We are still drilling with the simplest technology possible and are involving the community and the families where we can.  They help us collect the water we need and are still working alongside of the Agua Yaku crew—but now we can drill with three or four people rather than a dozen or more.
