News MAURITANIA: Government plans to install 300 boreholes by 2020

The news came in mid-July 2019. Mauritania wants to build 300 boreholes by 2020. The Mauritanian Minister of Hydraulics and Sanitation announced this during an ordinary session of the National Assembly. The boreholes will provide water to several Mauritanian localities, especially populations located in pasture areas. The project will cost the State 250 million Ouguiya MRU, just over six million dollars. The construction of these boreholes follows a programme contract signed between the Mauritanian government and the National Drilling and Well Corporation (SNFP), which will be responsible for the implementation of the project.
