Hand Dug Wells and Spring Development Manuals

 

The manuals available here were developed as part of the World Bank funded RWSSP in Ethiopia, implemented through the GoE Ministry of Water Resources. They are primarily focussed at field level engineers and technicians, both in the actual construction of hand dug wells and spring development, as well as supervising contracts for HDW and SD construction.

The manuals are overview documents and make reference to a number of Technical Design Sheets (TDS) which outline specific aspects of the construction process, and are designed to be practical references for use in the field. Please contact FH Designs if you are interested in seeing any of these TDSs.

Please note that these manuals are available for reference only by individuals and organisations, and are not to be reproduced or passed on.
