The Water Supply Well Guidelines for Use in Developing Countries publication is a multi-year project that was initially distributed at the 2011 UO 2nd International WaTER Conference, where the first edition was enthusiastically received. The project is ongoing. The Third Edition is now available, containing many additions and changes. The Third Edition evolved following record downloads of the previous two editions and from insights provided from the 36th WEDC International Conference in Kenya 2013. The Third Edition is currently available in four languages. Click an image to access a PDF version:
