National Water Supply and Sanitation Programme


This programme has several components, which include the expansion of water supply to satellite towns around Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Kisumu and Kisii. The other is expansion of water supply to resort cities of Lodwar and Isiolo and the third is the expansion of water supply to 15 medium size towns that can support manufacturing industries. These include Ol Kalou, Narok and Kapenguria in our Board area.

1.Expand Water and Sanitation coverage for satellite towns around Nakuru.

The Ultimate water supply strategy for Nakuru town and the satellite towns to the west is dependent on the completion of the Itare dam project which is under mobilization

2. Expansion of water supply and sanitation in the proposed resort cities to support the economic pillar: - Lodwar

While plans are underway to conduct studies for the long term solutions for the town of Lodwar and resort city that will be built in its vicinity at Elliye Springs, short and medium term solutions have been and are being implemented to serve the town.

3. Expansion of water supply and sanitation in medium sized towns of OlĀ  Kalou, Kapenguria and Narok.

The towns of Ol Kalou, Kapenguria and Narok are among the 15 medium sizetowns identified under the vision 2030 as those with potential to support manufacturing. In addition these towns will serve as administrative centres for their respective counties. The target for water services was to expand water supply to these town so as to support the exploitation of the potential.

The ultimate solution to Narok town is based on the construction of the Upper Narok dam. However, the immediate solution is to supply the town with water from the river through construction of weir.

For Kapenguria, the solution is dependent on the construction of the Siyoi Dam Projects. At the appropriate time the Board will design and develop a reticulation system for each of these towns to make use of Siyoi Dam.

Ol Kalou water Project is substantially completed and parts of the project have been commissioned for use. Under Phase II the board is planning to construct water storage, water treatment plant and a sewerage system.

The project will ultimately serve 96,000 people by 2023 when demand has been estimated to prime at 8,640m3 /day. This projection is based on an annual population growth of 3.6%

The project components include; intake works, transmission pipeline, treatment works, water reticulation system and storage tanks.
