Reply To: Mobile solar powered bore pumps

    Hi EWB,

    If people are not living/working near existing bore pumps, how do they currently get water?

    Do they get water delivered by truck?

    Our biggest question: What is the current average cost (per litre and per km), to truck water into sites?

    We will be basing our Project’s cost analysis on the above baseline.

    What are the logistical problems of trucking water in?
    – deliveries not arriving on time?
    – moving water if changing sites?
    – communication difficulties with the shipping company if location plans change?
    – other?

    Many Thanks,
