How much water can a borehole produce per day in Kenya?
A borehole located in a good spot and drilled well produces 600 to 3,000 liters of water per hour. This is ideal for domestic use. However, for industrial or agricultural use, you need more.
How deep should a borehole be in Kenya?
Boreholes are typically drilled to 250 to 400 m depth.
How many years can a borehole last?
With appropriate maintenance, boreholes can remain for decades, even a lifetime. We have seen boreholes in use that were created hundreds of years ago when drilling techniques were nowhere near as advanced as they are today.
