Well Drilling uses a participatory methodology to teach about drilling shallow wells and equipping them with hand pumps, especially in the context of rural developing communities. It is ideal for people who will be using small mud rotary rigs such as the LS200. Topics include well siting, drilling techniques, well completion, hand pump installation, specific well construction skills, and best practices.
This manual introduces beginning well drillers to the technical skills, knowledge, and attitudes that are considered necessary for a successful well drilling program using a small mud-rotary drill rig.
