It is recognised that drilling interventions vary widely both nationally and internationally and are not always cost-effective. The objective of this consultancy is to identify and set out key procedures for cost-effective boreholes as appropriate for Zambia.
The report considers the existing status of borehole drilling in Zambia. Chapter 2 reflects on the meaning of “cost effective” and key areas of concern are highlighted. Chapter 3 summarises borehole costs and prices in Zambia. Chapter 4 examines Zambian policies and practices with respect to the generic principles of the COP and the proposed structure of the “Guideline to Standard Procedures for Design and Construction of Protected Water Points” (Appendix 5). Headings in the report text include brackets which refer to the related numbered section in the proposed guideline structure. The Report text reflects on current practices, and recommends action for further consideration and inclusion. Recommendations are italicised in the text.
