This field note has been written for managers of water supply programmes and projects. It provides a step by step guide on the siting of drilled water wells. As a first step, the essential requirements for a simple groundwater model are set out, including some basic explanations to help the reader establish a sound understanding of hydrogeology.
The field note subsequently explains what needs to be taken into consideration when selecting a suitable site for drilling. This includes the requirements of the water well, and a comprehensive set of instructions on how the most suitable site should be determined. Key considerations with respect to the tender and contract documents are also set out, as well as some basic information regarding field work and contract management.
The field note essentially takes the reader through the process from consideration of the user needs right up to the process of engaging a drilling contractor to construct the drilled water well.
This note is an update of the 2010 publication of the same name, with minor corrections. (authorr abstract).
