Borehole Drilling in Zimbabwe - What Is A Borehole and What Can It Do?

What Is A Borehole and What Can It Do?

Not only do drilling boreholes help to provide sustainable water and ground heating sources for both residential and commercial use, but boreholes can also be used in environmental assessments, construction and more.

If you think your household, business or initiative could benefit from a borehole, get in touch with our team today to find out more about what we can do for you.

Drilling a borehole requires precision and expertise. It involves the creation of a deep, narrow hole in the ground. There are several different ways to drill a borehole and the best method for drilling often depends on the location of the site itself.

For a water borehole, we need to make sure that there is a viable groundwater 
source to tap into, which is what we call an aquifer. This is a rock that has water held within – water that could well have been there for hundreds or even thousands of years. 

By drilling into it, the borehole works with the pressure from below the aquifer and allows you to access the water.

Borehole Site Investigation: Borehole investigation and site investigations are both essential parts of any building or engineering project. This process involves several steps, including desk study, ground or soil investigation, contamination assessments and geotechnical analysis.

Boreholes site investigation is important in determining the ground quality of the site that’s being worked on. The information gathered from this analysis can help to establish the best approach when it comes to working on the site.
