A long way down

DSC_0206.JPG

We are hoping to use water from an underground aquifer for irrigation, domestic use and ground source heating in the buildings in the near future. In order to achieve this, we have drilled two boreholes on site. The drilling rig arrived and took 2 weeks to create the holes. The extraction borehole is 75m deep, where we will pump water from. The 2nd borehole is to pump the water down that has had the heat extracted from it.

Whilst there isn’t a lot to see, the boreholes are really exciting as they offer the chance to create a sustainable supply of energy and fresh water.

  1. This is really great technology ! You’ll be looking forward to constantly warm feet and lovely hot showers. I’m dying to see the system in action.
