  • Leonard Mathemabe Botswana Course Module: Module 3: Groundwater and Surface Water Course Topic: Water Infiltration Comment: Ground water is not poluted with any micro organism as compared to surface waters.Drilling water borehole is a major method of getting water from the ground.Drilling water depends depth on the parent rock and most of the run off water inflitrate up to certain depth and this will be depending on the type of soil in that particular area..Clay soil is slightly or partially or semi permeable because it has close soil particles than sandy soil with big and spacely particles.Drilling a borehole to get under ground water is avery tricky processes and water devining and prospecting it is a must,coz this is because many rocks contain pores, spaces that come in all shapes and sizes.Ground water can be collected as far as 1000meters depth or less than that. 2013-06-11 15:06:41
