Final Water Test Results

Hello all, Looks like the timing for the Barndance Waterproject Celebration is perfect. We got the results (attached to this and the following email). Water quality is good (they haven’t tested the microbials) and using my judgment, we will be able to go ahead with a hand pump. I will conference with Mark next week to confirm, and perhaps Lara, you could check once again with Erin. Hand pumps have a capacity of about 1100 L/sec, according to the pump test the well produces water up to 2000L/sec. Installing a handpump right now makes financially more sense. The community can start collecting money, demonstrate sustainability etc. after which a more suffisticated system could be installed if it makes sense with the water quantities available. Dominik
