Hand Dug Well

Here's a picture of Ganzorig about about 20 feet below. It took him and a team about a week to dig this hole. Then it had to be dig even deeper. They pumped and dug in waste deep water simultaneously to make the well about 5 feet deeper than this, before installing casing and an underground storage tank. It was a dirty muddy job.

Today the water comes out as clear as any tapwater, with similar water pressure powered by a small electric pump.
