Animal Trough

An animal trough is often a greatly desired accompaniment to an IAS well. In fact, animal troughs are typically a necessary add-on for wells that are drilled in arid and semi-arid climates, where large herds of cattle, goats and other livestock are kept by the local population. Animal troughs are receptacles where water is collected and stored, and from which domestic animals can drink. The troughs vary in size and shape according to the need and availability of materials and resources readily found in the region. An animal trough can be made from bricks and cement or fabricated steel sheets. Animal troughs are positioned away from the well in order to help prevent well contamination.
