EXCAVATIONS: Shallow well system.

In this system, a hole of 30 cm in diameter or more is bored into the ground to a depth not excceding 10 m below the axis of the pump. A strainer tube of 15 cm diameter is lowered in the bore hole having a casing tube. A gravel filter is formed around the strainer tube by gradually removing the casing tube and simultaneousty pouring filter material, such as gravel etc. in the annular space. A suction pipe is lowered into the filter well so formed. The suction pipes from a number of such wells may be connected to one common header leading to the pumping unit.
