A novel approach for providing potable water in rural Sodwana Bay, northern Kwazulu-Natal, South ...
Many people living in the Sodwana area of South Africa do not have access to potable water. Groundwater is the best source of fresh water for the rural community. Potable water in the Zululand coastal plain, Sodwana, South Africa can be enhanced by: (i) providing detailed information on the aquifer system using geophysics; (ii) providing information on groundwater quality and its efficient use; (iii) providing low-cost/low technology local drillers with light-weight, manoeuvrable rigs with trained teams for...

Electrotelluric Geophysical Exploration
Noted petroleum geologist Jack Elam writes about the abilities of Geophysic's patented electrotelluric tool known as the Petro-Sonde. It's ability to give the client the depth, thickness and contents of a pay zone without the need for boreholes first. By far the most advanced surveying tool on the market today the Petro-Sonde has been used in thousands of surveys all across the globe. It is simply unbeatable in it's cost effectiveness versus the information given by it's use.
High fluoride drinking water in Gokwe, northwest Zimbabwe
More than 200 million people worldwide are exposed to excessive fluoride in drinking water. According to the World Health Organization, the optimal concentration range of fluoride in drinking water is 0.5 to 1.5 mg/L. Above this range, populations may contract dental fluorosis or, in severe cases, crippling skeletal fluorosis. In the Gokwe area in NW Zimbabwe, where drinking water contains up to 11 mg/L fluoride, fluorosis prevalence has previously been estimated at 62%. This paper investigates the water quality...
