One has to understand- the water we pump from underground is in many cases many many years old. Underground water is an accumulation of rainwater over many years, therefore we do have a responsibility not to abuse and over subtract boreholes.

How water drilling works. Steyn Drilling Contractors


The underground water systems of our planet comes in the form of underground fissures and cracks in the earth's crust. Underground water is not found in one spot only, it is always coming from someware and is in process of flowing somewere, thus we can find water from the same cracks in different boreholes. One can also miss one crack by centimeters and drill a dry hole as little as a meter from a wet hole.

Rainwater or ground water penetrates underground soil at a very slow rate of 3 - 14 meter per year depending on the soil type. In sandy formations recharge is much faster than in high clay content soils. Once a borehole has been pumpped dry it takes many years -if at all- to be recharged to the origional yields. One should never subtract more than 60 % of the yeild of a propperly tested borehole.
