Brennan's Update (7/13/10)

I just got a call (seconds ago) from Africa from my father, Professor Saeta, bringing word of their great triumph. They have got the well working, and working beautifully, with a plentiful flow rate of 700 liters per minute. (I think.) [Actually, 700 liters per hour.] In any case, they have got everything working well now, and they are relieved to have it all working well.

It took a while to get the pump to work, but once we did we were quite excited.

We took showers.

A few days later, we connected the pipe from the borehole to another pipe in the trench,

then from the pipe in the trench to the tank.

In addition we connected the conduit.

By this time you may realize that by "we" I mean Peter, Ethan, Ryan, and Isabel. The rest of us were at the school for most of this time doing electrical work.

And here's a picture of a goat that stood across from us for the entire trip. It just stared at us and yelled loudly for the whole time. Perhaps the one we ate was a relative.


  1. Congratulations to all of you!!

  2. That's great news! Simply wonderful what you all have done.
