Striking liquid gold on Pom Pom

Returning to Pom Pom after a year away, one of the things on our to do list was to create a new well and have a new fresh water supply on camp.


At 6 foot deep we struck water



After a few hours of hard work digging we hit the fresh water table.


 


A recycled water tank and dust bin make great well construction materials.


 





Miti, Kairul, Dino and Tom putting in the final touches.

















The well workforce.



The final product - now only a pump to go

 
A mornings work and we have a new fresh water supply for drinking water and for our fresh water showers and toilets.
Good job well done.

TRACC seriously recommends that all divers get certified to rescue.  This is why.
