1. ELECTRIC SHALLOW WATER WELLS

This type of well is currently only available in Cambodia. Here, an electric motor pump is installed at the well which helps tremendously with the pumping process. Its use can significantly reduce the time and effort needed to bring up enough water for each person – making it easier for women and children, who are usually assigned the task. Shallow water wells are dug at a depth of 30-40 feet and installed with a conventional electric motor pump.

WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?

  • At just $365 per well, this well is only slightly more expensive than a manual hand pump- but much more effective.

  • You can dedicate the water well with a plaque (up to 5 names.)

2. ELECTRIC DEEP WATER WELLS

This type of well is currently only available in Cambodia. Here, an electric motor pump is installed at the well which helps tremendously with the pumping process. In some areas, our team will need to dig even deeper to access clean water for the community. The deep electric pumps can reach 50-100 feet in depth, and are more costly due to the extra intensive labour required.
