Drain near Borehole

A Drain near Borehole is one of the biggest health hazards related to borehole water.

What to do with a drain near borehole.

  • First it is very important to test the water for any harmful minerals, bacteria, viruses and chemicals.

Let we talk about the design of a drain near borehole.

  • It is very important that you follow the standards for the design and building of a drain.
  • Make a deep hole in the ground.
  • Cast concrete on the floor at least 200 millimeters thick.
  • Use some steel reinforcing mesh in the concrete.
  • The hole must be at least 5 meters long and two meters wide.
  • It is always better to make it too big than to small.
  • You must divide the floor space in three sections.
  • Build the outside wall with two rows of bricks.
  • That is 230 millimeters wide.
  • You can even build three rows of brick on the outer walls.
  • The inner walls can be a one layer bricks.
  • Make sure you study the correct outlet principles for the sewerage water flow from one section to the other.
  • Plaster the walls to have a smooth wall surface.
  • The new raw sewerage will flow into the first section and with time the solids will move to the bottom of the section.
  • The water will now flow over to the second section.
  • Any solids that are still present will move to the bottom of the second section.
  • The water will then flow over to the third section.

 

What I would suggest is to get a sludge pump to pump the water out that is in the third section into a plastic tank.

  • This tank must be filled with material that has maximum surface areas.
  • You install a pipe that is connected to an air pump that pumps air into the tank from the bottom.
  • The air that moves up-wards helps the bacteria to absorb any solids or harmful bacteria.
  • When the water tank reach a certain height that water can now flow over to another small plastic tank that have some chlorine tablets in just to kill any bacteria and viruses.
  • What I would do is to install a UV light system at the outflow pipe of the small plastic tank.
  • That is for the final kill.
  • When the water flow passes the UV light any live organisms and viruses will be killed.
  • The water from this small tank would be suitable for gardening and to be used on plants.
  • I do not have any faith is the use of chlorine to kill roundworms.

 

What about a pit toilet?

  • A pit toilet is one of the biggest pollution culprits of ground water there is.
  • A pit toilet is a no go.
  • I don’t know why this ANC government do not ban pit toilets.
  • I guess it would now be a race thing.
  • They will say that it is only the poor people that make use of pit toilets.
  • The ANC government must provide better toilets for the people.
  • No why would they?
  • They would rather look for ways to take that money for themselves.
  • They do not care about pollution or the health implications it could have on the people.
  • What they don’t think of is that the people that are health conscious will use systems to purify their water.
  • The poor will just get ill and die due to the contaminated water.
  • Who will get the blame for the polluted water?
