In, most parts of Kenya people use groundwater as the main source of water. Although, during the rainy season people harvest the rainwater and store it. People from the Mt. Kenya region use water from natural rivers like R.Tana. Although part of Kenya mostly utilize the ground water.
To get ground water means coming with a borehole which wll constantly supply the water. So, today I will guide on the estimated cost of constructing a borehole in Kenya. Boreholes can either be drilled horizontally or vertically.
They are mostly constructed in place which are dry and experience shortage of water. Boreholes can be categorized as seasonal or permanet. Seasonal borehles vary depending on the rainfall and usually operate more efficiently during the rainy season.
Borehole construction actually requires a slight huge amount of capital. You require an approximately KSH500,000 – KSH1000,000 to set up your own borehole. However, the amount of money varies according to the size of the borehole.
