Résumé
A supply of safe reliable water is of great importance to the development rural societies in developing countries. Groundwater is often a source of such water. Development projects have tended to focus on either hand dug or machine drilled wells to exploit this groundwater. This focus has limited the ability of projects to adapt to different social and physical environments. Projects should consider a greater variety of more appropriate well construction techniques. One such technique is bucket boring of wells. Bucket boring has been used industrialized countries for more than a century. Bored wells may be an appropriate technology for development projects. They have many attributes that make them superior to hand dug wells and drilled wells in a variety of social and physical environments. The use of bucket boring as a well construction technique should be considered in all rural water projects in developing countries.
