Country Overview

1.1.1.WATER RESOURCES There are five main drainage areas in the country: -Lake Victoria, covering 8.0 per cent of the country; -Rift Valley and inland lakes, covering 22.5 per cent of the country; -Athi River and coast, covering 11.5 per cent of the country; -Tana River, covering 21.7 per cent of the country; -Ewaso Ng’iro, covering 36.3 per cent of the country. The water distribution in the drainage basins is both skewed and uneven with, for example, 282,600m3/km2 in the Lake Victoria basin and 21,300m3/km2 in the Athi and Coast catchments. There are six hydro-geological formations, which influence the distribution and availability of the groundwater resources: eastern quaternary sediment areas; bed rock areas; western quaternary areas; volcanic rock areas in the Rift Valley; volcanic areas outside the Rift Valley; older sedimentary areas. The internal renewable surface water resources are estimated at 20.2km3/year, while about 3.5km3 of groundwater is produced annually, of which the main part (3km3/year) is considered to overlap with the surface water resources. It is estimated that 10km3/year of water enters the country via transboundary rivers. The volcanic and quaternary geological formations are rich in groundwater. The annual safe abstraction yield of groundwater is estimated at 0.6km3, out of which 0.4km3 is the estimated yield from shallow wells while the remaining balance of 0.2km3 is estimated to come from boreholes. The total capacity of large and medium dams (> 15m) is about 4.1km3. In order to augment water supply, 1,782 small dams and 669 water pans have been constructed. There are nine lakes with a surface area of 10,747km2. Most of the lakes are saline with the exception of Victoria, Naivasha and Baringo. Lakes Nakuru and Naivasha have been declared Ramsar sites as wetlands of international importance for conservation of biodiversity. There is limited seawater desalinization, mainly for the hotels along the coast.

1.1.2.WATER USE The total water withdrawal is estimated to be over 2.7km3. The water demand is projected to increase to 5.8km3. Agriculture is the main user of water and currently consumes about 80 per cent, while municipal and commercial use accounts for the rest. There are a total of 1,800 municipal water supply schemes, out of which 700 are managed by the Ministry of Water Resource Management and Development while the communities manage the rest. There are 9,000 boreholes, most of which require rehabilitation. As a result of the skewed water distribution between the basins and within the basins, water use conflicts among irrigation, livestock, wildlife and environmental conservation is quite common in the Ewaso Ng’iro in the north, in the upper catchments of the Tana basin and the Athi basin.

1.2.WATER QUALITY, ECOSYSTEMS AND HUMAN HEALTH Major environmental problems are water pollution from urban and industrial wastes; degradation of water quality from increased use of pesticides and fertilizers; water hyacinth infestation in Lake Victoria; deforestation; soil erosion; desertification; and poaching. Water use and its effect on the environment is being taken into due consideration as 30 per cent of the flow at any point of abstraction has to be reserved for river maintenance and environment. Salinity as a result of irrigation is not widespread, except in the areas mentioned earlier where it is a result of already existing soil salinity. A case of environmental concern was experienced in the traditional irrigation area of Ngurumani, where waterlogging and swamp development was threatening the long-term sustainability of the irrigation in the area. An area of conflict exists between the wildlife and irrigation schemes, since the latter are situated in areas where there is a concentration of wildlife areas. The National Environmental Management and Coordinating Act (EMCA) No.8 of 1999 is in place to take care of the environmental impact of development and the government has established the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) to enforce it. The Act makes it mandatory to conduct an environmental impact assessment before the implementation of a project such as large-scale agriculture, use of pesticides, introduction of new animals and plants, use of fertilizers and irrigation development. Incidences of malaria and bilharzia are common in irrigated areas
