BGS have been commissioned to investigate the low drilling success rates encountered by the UNICEF IWASH programme in the Northern region of Ghana. The work is split into three phases: (1) situation analysis and information collation on current methods of groundwater development; (2) the development of a preliminary groundwater development map and suggestions for improving siting methods; and (3) a workshop and training course on groundwater development in N region. The project started on October 15th 2010 and is scheduled to finish by February 28th, 2011. Phase 1 involves a visit to Ghana, Phase 2 will occur mainly in the UK; and Phase 3 is scheduled to take place in Ghana during February 2011. This short note reports on the data collection visit 25th October – 5th November 2010. An itinerary, list of contacts and summary of data collected is given in the Appendices.
