Water Systems

There are some of you who have a reference for the pictures I'm about to show you. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, contact the right people and you'll figure it out.



This is the source of water provided for a town by the local mine. The water here is pumped from 800m below ground where the water table is.



It is then pumped up the hill about a half a kilometer or more to this Chateau where it probably should be treated. From here it goes in two directions. Some of the water is pumped in the direction of a far away village, and the rest is pumped back underground where it flows down the other side of the hill.



And this is the well where it comes out and where more than 200 people get their drinking water.

do they treat it at all, or is it just 'as is' well water from 800m?
