Ground+WaterTanzania is a small, flexible business. We seek out and bring the best available technical expertise – Tanzanian first – on our projects. Our work integrates a wide range of relevant disciplines to most effectively support our customers and their communities. Currently, we have the necessary qualified people to conduct water system planning and inspection, well site geophysical surveys, and well pumping tests (with associated equipment). We strive to consistently deliver superior customer service by insisting that all work is conducted professionally, everything done the right way, by serving as advocates for our clients, and by maintaining integrity in everything that we do.
