Title: Low Cost Portable Percussion Well Drill And Bailer

Rowan University's team has built an innovative solution for improving access to water. Millions of people don't have access to clean water sources. In order to remedy this, they have designed and fabricated a versatile percussion soil drill made of local and low cost materials. Percussion drilling is versatile and can be used in various soil types ranging from soft soils to hard rocky soils. Percussion drilling is an environmentally sustainable and cost effective solution for areas with limited to no access to expensive drilling techniques.
