What he is describing in the video is drilling under very favorable conditions with relatively soft soil. It could very well be that that is doable in some of the areas there. There are six rivers through the country and I am sure some areas would be favorable. I haven't tried this method but his principles are sound.There could be a use for this as there are shortages of drinking water during the dry season for about 3 or 4 months.Another problem is getting water to farms during the dry season and that is one of the things I would like to check out. In that case the drilling method I am most familiar with ... cable tool drilling would be a very good choice as it takes a minimum of equipment compared to rotary drilling and the wells are much more efficient on energy usage also. Pumping costs can be significantly lower.Thanks for the video link and I will study his methods a bit more so it is fresh in my mind before I go over there.

The drivers are so good in Myanmar that you seldom if ever see anyone bump each other even in wall to wall traffic .The electrical systems in these countries make me believe that Romex nailed to the wall is an excessively safe wiring system...

This topic reminds me of the EMAS group I found a while back: https://vimeo.com/channels/emas They have an absolute wealth of info regarding water management for developing areas (and perhaps some developed areas inhabited by backwards-minded folks like ourselves.. )
