Leguruki Well

0

With donor monies, we rehabilitated an unused well we located in the village of Leguruki. Upon pump testing, we found the well yielded sufficient volumes of high quality clean water to supply three nearby villages. The well is 100 feet deep, and the water proved to be drinkable. (Ground water has too much fluoride to be safely drinkable.) The Barry A. Murphy Fund expended $30,000 to re-drill the borehole and install a new casing, a solar-driven pump and solar panels. The holding tank was completely rebuilt, and a security fence was installed. The well began supplying water in November of 2011 to three villages.
