In Geed-Deeble, Somaliland, the hunt for water has begun! CCF with the help of Build Vast Drilling has started the all-important hunt for water to supply our new Cheetah Research and Conservation Center in Somaliland.
We hope the drilling process will only be about 10 days in total and that our depth will not have to exceed 150 meters. All our surveys and available data tell us this, but exploration is still just that exploration.
Once a suitable water source is found we still need to excavate and install almost 3 kilometers of pipeline to supply water to the center. Because of the landscape we are in, digging by machinery and by hand will be a laborious project. But the project is necessary for us to move forward with our work. When we have water, we will then be off and running with the construction phase.
