Artesian Water Well At Wadi Deir. 01 March 2002


During the spring of 2001, the Municipality of Bazbina bored and equipped an artesian water well located at Wadi Deir to supplement the water supply network of the village that was brought from Ain El-Tini as well as to augment the water supply for irrigation.

Mr. Milad Antoun, the Mayor, said that the well was driven to a depth of 210 meters and fitted with an 8 inches submersible pump placed at a depth of 185 meters. Two rooms were built to enclose the water well and the 110 KVA electric generator. The little building was nicely finished and cladded with stone masonry. A 375 meters long steel pipe with a diameter of 6 inches was constructed to deliver the pumped water to the ground water reservoir that feeds by gravity the village network distribution system.

The total cost of the works amounted to USD 71,500.00 and it was funded by three sources being:
a- The Co-operative Housing Foundation
funded by The United States A.I.D. 27,000
b- The Municipality of Bazbina 24,500
c- Private Donors 20,000

The Municipality and the people of Bazbina wish to express their gratitude to The Co-operative Housing Foundation and to extend special thanks to its staff who were directly involved in the project, that is: Mr. Ayman Abdallah, Mr. Talal Hajj Dib and Miss Nada Jean-Pierre Nassar whose collective efforts and great assistance brought this project to its successful completion.
