SDC Well Cleaning in an Emergency: Technical Guidelines

Acronimo WellClean

Abstract Worldwide, floods occur several times a year. In fact, they are becoming more frequent and assuming greater dimensions due to global climate change. In the course of such disasters, wells supplying water for drinking and hygiene purposes and those serving irrigation and livestock are usually contaminated by flooding and infiltration. Owing to this contamination, the wells affected can usually no longer fulfil their purpose. Their yield may be restricted, and above all, drinking water quality no longer meets hygienic requirements and poses a health hazard. This means that after the floodwater has subsided, the wells affected need to be cleaned to again serve as a reliable water source.
