Our drilling process is simplified as outlined below:

Phase1. Licenses / Permits.

Before drilling you need a WRA Authorization & a NEMA licence.
WRA abstraction permit is obtained after we carry out a successful Hydro-geological & Geophysical Survey for the proposed borehole site; take the reports to WRA for approval and issuance of the permit.
NEMA license is obtained after we carry out a successful Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) for the proposed site and take the reports to NEMA for approval.

Phase 2. Drilling.

In most cases, the type of borehole will depend on the specific intended use, and the preferred size by the customer. Water from some of the commonly sunk water wells will serve commercial purposes, industrial use, irrigation, general agricultural practice, and domestic purposes among other uses. in terms of size, the diameter of the well can range from around 4.0 inches to 14 inches in diameter. We can handle depths of up to 400 metres depending on the specific level of water along with other considerations plus preferences.

Phase 3. Pump Installations & Other Connections.

This depends on amount of water (Q) to be pumped and borehole depth (H). The hire the (Q), the bigger the pump required the more the cost and vice-versa.
