Water From Shallow Wells

We consider water on tap, drawn from wells 30+ meters deep, electrically pumped with power generated thousands of miles away, normal. The question is, is this a good thing? The vulnerability is obvious. Is there an alternative? Well there is. The alternative is water drawn from shallow wells with a simple, solar powered pump.

David Dawson, who lives near La Broquerie, has prepared this presentation of the construction of a simple, effective pump. (We now need someone to prepare a simple how-to for a shallow well.)
