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 4-step process. Read more by clicking on each below.
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!
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 groundwater potential in your area.
The final report is delivered no later than 3 workdays 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 be 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.
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.
One simple price for a manually-drilled borehole up to 50m.

Our current number of days spent on a drilling project.
boreholes, of which 72 were manually drilled.
Average yield per hour of boreholes equipped with solar/electricity.
Once we know the water in your borehole, we size and install a submersible water pump and add the following:
Pipeline to deliver water to an elevated tank
Solar or generator power for your pump
Cattle trough if needed.
We have installed to date 28 kilometres of plumbing and 40 submersible pumps (mainly hybrid pumps accomodating both solar and generators).
we are proud to offer our borehole drilling services to farmers who live uphill or far from surface water. Through this program, farmers get a full system and 12 months to pay. Allowing them to experience easy access to water without the financial burden of a loan.
How it works
This program is offered by Water Access Rwanda to simplify farmers’ access to clean and reliable water on their farms.
Following a positive survey report we share:
The total cost of the full project as designed with the client.
The payment schedule (usually 25% upfront and 12 equal instalments after project handover).
