Borehole drilling process in Kenya

Borehole drilling process in Kenya

Borehole drilling process in kenya is a process that begins with the Hydro-geological survey and Environmental Impact Assessment, by professionals accredited to the Water Resources Authority ( WRA) and NEMA respectively for Authorization to drill.

The former process also provides us with an estimated drilling depth which forms the bases of the Costing, as the total cost is dependent on the final depth.


The Hydro-geological survey will cost Ksh 45,000 plus Ksh 7000 for the Authorization to drill permit from the WRA application and subsequently Ksh 40,000 for NEMA. The actual drilling will cost an average of Ksh7000 per meter Including test pumping and Lab water analysis.


From experience, depths will range approximately 200 meters in your location(meaning drilling alone will average Ksh 1.4 million

A hydro-geological survey is thus paramount for us to have a closer estimate of the depth. This can be undertaken as soon as you are ready.

NOTE : An electric pump is needed whose cost will only be determined after the drilling and testing of the yield capacity of your borehole through Ksh 450,000 is a good estimate

We hope this gives you an insight into the process and the requirements, including cost estimates.

We  all the applications and follow up on the issuance of the licenses after you commit us to the drilling work upon receipt of our quotation.
