Guidelines and toolkits

This manual is part of a series of guides devised by the Oxfam Public Health Engineering Team to help provide a reliable water supply for populations affected by conflict or natural disaster. The manual is designed as a guide to using Oxfam's water equipment. Oxfam's water equipment is designed using available, easily transported equipment which is simple, rapidly assembled, and fully self-contained, to provide an adequate, safe water supply at moderate cost. The principles used in these packages may often be useful in long-term development projects. This manual has been prepared to assist in the various aspects of hand dug well excavation and cleaning. It covers well auger survey, well digging, dewatering and desludging kits.
