Water Supply Borehole Drilling Supervision Training - Water Futures Programme


This document summarises a 5-day ‘Water Supply Borehole Drilling Supervision’ training programme held in Balaka / Ntcheu Districts (Malawi) between the dates of 1 to 5 October 2018. This initiative was funded by the Scottish Government and delivered through the University of Strathclyde’s Climate Justice Fund: Water Futures Programme (CJF Programme).

The sessions were facilitated and delivered by staff from Malawi Government’s Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development (MoAIWD), University of Strathclyde (Scotland) and Baseflow (Malawian groundwater focussed NGO). The sessions were aimed primarily at district level field staff from MoAIWD District Water Offices with responsibilities for field level supervision of water supply borehole drilling. Attendees were also welcomed from Regional and National MoAIWD Offices, as well as local and international NGOs.

By the end of the week, each attendee had viewed each step of water supply borehole drilling, construction and testing, through a series of field and classroom sessions delivered by experienced water sector professionals. Malawian standards and international best practice were highlighted and emphasised throughout the week. Attendees were encouraged to get ‘hands-on’ taking samples, measurements and making decisions themselves.
