Mud Pies Anyone? A New Water Well Is Seriously Messy Work!

My goodness it’s messy, dirty, muddy work putting in a new water well! The immediate and seemingly endless byproduct is MUD. Lots and lots of mud. The team builds drainage ditches to channel it away form the borehole. They dig small retention holes to keep it handy for re-use as needed. And obviously…splashes around in it pretty substantially. If they were little kids…they’d be having the biggest and funnest mud fight of their lives! Its always struck us as an odd juxtaposition: to get clean safe water, you have to get downright filthy in dirty water. But so they do, our team of dedicated drillers and the local volunteers that make it all happen. This Mud Bath brought to you by Well #30, in Mihugwe.
