There is not enough clean water or hygiene provisions for people to continually wash their hands
A borehole is a structure that is susceptible to physical, chemical and biological processes that may influence its life span, yield and water quality. The above factors depend on quality of borehole construction, the way it is operated and geological conditions or aquifer characteristics. Deterioration of a borehole may lead to some serious contaminations of water harmful for human use and eventually it being abandoned, leading to costly measures to develop alternative water sources for communities. Borehole diagnosis and rehabilitation is often a cheaper alternative to new borehole drilling.
