Abstract:

Background information about the water supply in polar regions and the development of the Rodriguez Well in Greenland are presented. The design concept of using waste heat from the diesel generators, procurement and fabrication of equipment, and the installation and operation of an experimental well at Old South Pole Station are described in detail. Problems encountered during the experiment were not serious, and the recommended changes are listed as part of the overall recommendation to construct a Rodriguez Well for the water supply at the New South Pole Station.
