Revision history [back]
In Zambia, there are areas where boreholes are the only source for water especially in the Southern Provinces. Instead of installing soak pits, they make animal drinking troughs. All run off goes into the animal trough and this is used for animal drinking. In some areas, small gardens are also made around some water points to improve nutrition.
In areas where water is a problem, we can not stop people from using borehole water for other uses.
