Kures Community Well # 1 … 12 km north of Kitale … Kitale to Kisawai road.The well will now be serving 3 communities … Recompletion of the well that has been nonfunctional for over 2½ years.
Steps (photos); After removing all the old damaged pipe, bad pump, and clearing the silted well bore, completion begins with tripping in the new pump. Next; the new pipe is lowered into well bore, making up connections every 6 meters, followed by installing the hanger plate, and setting the well head.
Pull Rods had to be tripped in and out several times because pump seals kept getting damaged. Finally a succesful run.
After completion, happy children wash and play in the water, while a young mother gathers water for her family.
