No corpus analisado neste artigo encontramos referencia a alguns locais de Angola, localizados em zonas conhecidas do autor, por serem da sua origem familiar--residencia atual ou anterior, ou residencia de familiares--(artigos A cidade e os macacos, ou 2015 e o cacimbo), mas tambem de acontecimentos nacionais e de tomada de territorio por outros compatriotas (artigos Domingas Serrote, a zungueira de tarefas, ou Volto ja, vou ao Leste de comboio).
The water sources used in the settlement are: wide-diameter shallow wells (cacimboes), with diameter between 80 and 150 cm, and maximum depth of 15 meters, dug manually until the surface water table is reached, without the need for licensing or governmental authorization; a spring (a point where water flows from the soil surface); a creek (an amazon watercourse comprising a long branch of a river or canal, characterized by relatively low depth); and a deep well (capture of water from water tables situated between two impermeable layers--requiring special labor and equipment for construction).
After negotiation with the residents' association and the proprietors, 20 shallow wells (cacimboes) were selected--those in which there was sharing between households--supplying 39 families of a total of 219 properties (17).

The chlorinators were installed in the cacimboes in the presence of the owners of the sources, and they were oriented on the method used.

As a result, 100% of the wells analyzed were contaminated and not suitable for consumption (Table 1).
