Why Is Groundwater Important?? - Groundwater Basics with Nakiso Borehole Drilling.

Groundwater makes up nearly 30% of all the world’s freshwater; only 0.2% is found in lakes, streams or rivers and 70% is bound up in snow and ice on mountains and in the polar regions. 

As rivers and lakes tend to be supported by groundwater, it is not exaggerating to say that almost all the water we use for agriculture, industry and drinking water is either groundwater or has been groundwater at some point in the water cycle.

Groundwater plays a number of very important roles in our environment and in our economies. In the environment, it supports rivers, lakes and wetlands, especially through drier months when there is little direct input from rainfall.

The flow of groundwater into rivers as seepage through the river bed, known as baseflow, can be essential to the health of wildlife and plants that live in the water.

Many reasons make groundwater a good choice for water supply:

1. It is often present in those areas where there are limited surface water sources.

2. The quality of groundwater is usually very good, and it does normally require much less treatment than river water to make it safe to drink. The soil and rocks through which the groundwater flows help to remove pollutants.

3. The quality doesn’t change much through the year, which can be important for industry.

4. Groundwater also responds slowly to changes in rainfall, and so it stays available during the summer and during droughts when rivers and streams have dried up.

5. Groundwater is relied on in many parts of Africa and the developing world, because it can often be found close to villages and it does not require the large costs which may be associated with capturing, treating and piping surface water.

6. Groundwater doesn’t require expensive reservoirs to store water in before it is used.

Five Facts About Borehole Drilling That You Need To Take Note Of:
1. Know Your Borehole Casings:The Preferred Borehole Casing In Zimbabwe Is Class 9 and 10 (Pressure Classes.)This is because Class 9 and Class 10 Casings are more collapse resistant. The strength of a Casing is often described as collapse resistance.

2. Borehole Drilling Depth: The exact depth, of where the water is located, cannot be established by the drilling contractor nor the Water Surveyor (Borehole Siter).

3. The Is No 100% Guarantee On Water: It is important to note that it is never a 100% guarantee that any hole will yield water, the amount and water quality can also not be guaranteed by the drilling contractor and water surveyor.

4. Borehole Siting or Water Surveying Is Important: Making use of a hydrologist or traditional water diviner will increase your chances of having a successful borehole that will yield a sufficient amount of water.

5. Know The Risks: The risk of the borehole drilling lies with the property owner. The client will still be liable for the drilling costs irrespective of a borehole yielding water or not.
