Potential Health Hazard Of Water Wells Proliferation In Nigeria


National President of the Nigeria Master Drillers Association, Michael Ale, has warned of the proliferation of water wells in the country, saying the uncontrolled nature of these wells portend potential health hazard for the people. He said on the average, about 200 boreholes are drilled daily in Nigeria, which may be higher when there are government projects at all levels, adding that the extent of urban groundwater use from private wells in Nigeria call for national action.
