Your Own Water Point

You don't have to live near a river, lake or other surface water to execute a water project. Through well-constructed boreholes, you can access underground aquifers for reliable access to clean water for your project. Our groundwater systems are ideal for farms, schools, health facilities, and other institutions. 

To get your water project done, we follow a simple 3-step process. Read more by clicking on each below. 

 

Hydro-geological Surveys

Vertical Electric Sounding and Seismic Surveys provide a detailed profile of the layers below ground. Our affordable surveys increase your chances of finding water at the most affordable location on your land. 

Don' t leave it up to chance!

point surveys

Our affordable geophysics toolkit allows us to probe the underground up to 60m below ground level using resistivity. We also examine the spread of layers through a property using seismic surveys. 

For $500, our team is at your disposal for a survey throughout to locate groundwater and the layers below visible ground.  

Each survey includes:

1. 2-4 VES points 

2. A detailed report studying hydrogeology, geology, recharge and discharge zones and ground water potential in your area. 

The final report is delivered no later than 3 work days after the field visit. 

3. A quotation for the proposed project.

Note: We understand that many seek our services when looking for groundwater. Thus we must precise that a survey is not a guarantee of water. 

The results of the survey will be either negative, positive or inconclusive. 

We promise to do our best to provide information and diligently work to provide you with water. We hope you understand that we work within established natural boundaries and natural laws, and we are merely messengers.

Borehole Drilling

Affordable Boreholes

Underground water aquifers offer an unlimited source of clean water that can be accessed through a borehole. Water Access Rwanda drills and cases boreholes. We use a variety of methods to find water for you.

 

We have built our expertise with manual drilling techniques and offer an attractive fixed fee for a shallow borehole up to 50m deep that was surveyed by our team. Water in the borehole is tested both in quantity and quality, ensuring you are ready to use the borehole as desired. 

Our Offer

average yield per hour of boreholes equipped with solar/electricity. 

Plumbing

Once we know the water in your borehole, we size and install a submerssible water pump and add the folowing: 

  1. Pipeline to deliver water to an elevated tank

  2. Elevated tank

  3. Solar or generator power for your pump

  4. Cattle trough if needed.

We have installed to date 28 kilometers of plumbing and 40 submerssible pumps (mainly hybrid pumps accomodating both solar and generators).
