Alex while in Butabira village checked first on the newly completed wall fence and appreciated the work done by the village residents. The new borehole fence meets the standards and the community did a very good job and went a head to paint it. Everyone that visits this well appreciates the idea done on this borehole and want to roll out the same idea in their villages too. Alex then went into the meeting with all village residents to prepare them for the water survey expected soon in the village. The hydrogeologist is expected in Butabira village on Monday 15/03/2021, the village is supposed to cooperate well with the surveyor allowing the hydrogeologist do his job as required without interfering him. The village residents selected two points in the village considered to be in the middle of the village that would be considered for survey by the hydrogeologist. Alex however told all the people that it doesn’t mean that it’s these points that for sure have water to consider for drilling. The hydrogeologist guides the village to get the suitable water point for drilling but considering all points in the village while surveying. The village residents are very happy that soon they will have this new well in their village and appreciated kibo group for the help of another well in the village. The village residents seemed very happy and promised to cooperate during the water survey and follow the guidance from the hydrogeologist.
