    Boring of wells at 10 sites are being done.

    Status: In-progress

    Operating Status:

    Boring process has started on Tuesday in very hot condition. The laborers were warned by the project manager about affects of working in hot condition when the temperature reaches 40 C (104 F). All the field workers have been asked to stop field work and write case studies, plan of work and other notes at home. But the boring and digging teams insisted on working in the morning and complete by 11 am. Despite working in the morning, on Thursday the head of the boring team and a field assistant suffered from heat stroke. They had to be taken to the doctor for first aid advice. Now they are fine and the work has been totally stopped until the labourers feel that they can withstand the heat since few spells of shower occurred and also in the forecast. The work will definitely be completed by July.
