Report on The Performance of Afridev and Nira Handpumps on the Upper Regions Community Water Project (COWAP) Ghana Report for the GWSC/CIDA Community Water Project Upper Regions, Ghana

Between 1974 and 1981, approximately 2700 boreholes were constructed and installed with handpumps in what was at the time the Upper Region of Ghana, under bilateral agreements between the governments of Ghana and Canada (the Canadian International Development Agency). The handpumps installed during this period were the Moyno and Monarch pumps, which, while robust, required heavier tools and equipment and some specialized skills to maintain. Management and maintenance of these sites was under a centralized system, whereby communities paid a tariff to the national water agency then responsible (the then Ghana Water and Sewerage Company), which fielded repair technicians to perform the work. Problems of long waiting times for repairs were very common due to repair team logistical problems, lack of equipment and shortages of spares.

Framework for Water Source Protection Ministry of Water & Environment, Uganda

Author: MWE
Year of Publishing: 2013
Publisher: Ministry of Water & Environment
Institution: Directorate of Water Resource Management

These guidelines were developed as part of the wider operationalisation of Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM). The basis of the guidelines is developing a 'Water Source Protection Plan', which bridges the gap between Water Safety Planning, payment for watershed services and IWRM. The planning process encourages the owners/operators of water infrastructure (pumping stations, dams, valley tanks, boreholes) to identify the people in the catchment area for their water source whose activities may be impacting the quantity, quality or reliability of their water supply, and then to agree a mutually beneficial plan of action.

Of the five volumes, three are currently available from MWE from their website (or below)

Draft Review of the Household Arsenic Removal Technology Options

Institution: Handpump Technology Network

Arsenic is widely distributed element in the earth’s crust and ranks twentieth in elemental presence. As a Group V element, arsenic exhibits a broad range of chemical reactivity and it is commercially used in alloys with lead. Arsenic in natural water has been reported from several countries including Bangladesh, China, Chile, Ghana, India, Nepal, Rumania, Taiwan, USA and Vietnam. In India, arsenic pollution is mostly of geological origin. However, ground water pollution of anthropogenic origin - due to industrial or mining waste - has been reported from Chennai in Tamil Nadu and Rajnandgaon in Madhya Pradesh.

This case study traces the development of handpumps in India, including a review of the systems developed to ensure consistent, high quality production of the India Mark II. It investigates the pressures that led to the introduction of a new variant of the India Mark II — the India Mark III — a handpump designed for easy maintenance and repair. It highlights the primary issues of concern in the field that led to formulation of the concept of Village Level Operation and Maintenance (VLOM).

A preliminary study of training artisans in upgradeable techniques for family owned wells

Several years ago Zimbabwe embarked on a program of upgrading family owned wells. This program was fully endorsed by the GOZ and operated under the MOHCW. The program has been well documented in papers and other publications. This program was based on the fact that for many decades individual families had chosen to upgrade their own wells privately and outside the formal GOZ rural water supply and sanitation program.

The standard and most commonly used version of the Zimbabwe Bush Pump uses down the hole components comprising 50mm galvanised iron pipe, 6mm mild steel pump rods, a 75mm brass cylinder with matching piston and heavy duty foot valve. The 75mm piston is fitted with two leather piston seals. The two piston seals are the fastest wearing part of any Bush Pump, and in the standard version, their replacement requires the lifting of the rising main (steel pies) to gain access to the piston and its seals. This is routine practice in Zimbabwe.
