Code of Practice for Water Well Construction NIGERIAN INDUSTRIAL STANDARD

Description:

This Nigerian Code of Practice for Well Construction was elaborated by the Technical Committee for Water Well Construction.
Groundwater development is one of the sources of the Federal and State Governments Water Supply Intervention Programmes under which government embarked on construction of open wells and boreholes in order to increase access to portable water to Nigerians. However, water well construction is still characterized by cases of “failed hole”, poor quality service, and unprofessional conduct of drillers and lack of established code to regulate the practice of water well drilling in Nigeria. These are serious concern to government, donor agencies and sector stakeholders who see them as militating factors towards attainment of water supply project objectives in particular and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in general. This Code of Practice was therefore elaborated to provide the framework for water well construction in Nigeria.
In the elaboration of this Code of Practice, reference made to Nigerian Industrial standards and National standards of other countries are acknowledged.
