Country Overview

1.1.1.WATER RESOURCES As a whole and on average, Tanzania has extensive water resources. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), in 2008 Tanzania had 96.27km3 of renewable water resources per year (by comparison, estimated world water resources are in the order of 43,750km3/yr). This corresponds to 2,266 m3 per person per year. Water resources are, however, distributed unevenly – both in time and space. During the dry season, which usually lasts from June to October, even large rivers can dry up or their flow declines substantially. Some parts of the country receive, on average, up to 3,000mm of rain per year, while in other regions (such as the Dodoma Region or the Rift Valley) yearly rainfall averages 600mm. Lakes alone cover about 7 per cent of Tanzania’s land surface On the borders there are three African Great Lakes: Lake Victoria, Lake Tanganyika and Lake Nyasa; inland lakes include Lake Rukwa, Lake Eyasi and Lake Manyara. There are nine major drainage basins in Tanzania, divided according to the recipient water body. The Lake Victoria basin drains to the Mediterranean Sea (through the Nile river basin). Draining to the Indian Ocean there are the Pangani river basin, the Ruvu/Wami river basin, the Rufiji river basin, the Ruvuma River and Southern Coast basin, and the Lake Nyasa basin. The Lake Tanganyika basin drains to the Atlantic Ocean through the Congo river basin. The Internal Drainage basin and the Lake Rukwa basin belong to the Rift Valley (endorheic) basin. Tanzania has been divided into nine administrative units corresponding to the nine major river or lake basins. Basin Water Offices (BWOs) are responsible for regulating and planning the use of water resources, based on the Water Resources Management Act Nr. 11 of 2009. The water resource management section of the Water Sector Development Programme requires that their activities be carried out in line with the principles of Integrated Water Resources Management. It has, however, been noted that BWOs suffer from severe institutional weaknesses: they often lack necessary information and clear development plans to guide investments and support monitoring, and are largely characterized by weak human capacity.

1.2.WATER QUALITY, ECOSYSTEMS AND HUMAN HEALTH Water quality varies significantly within the country. In the semi-arid regions (including Dodoma, Singida, Tabora, Shinyanga and Arusha), colour and turbidity levels become problematic during the rainy season. Rivers in the fluoride belt (including Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Singida and Shinyanga regions of the Rift Valley, and extending to the Pangani and Internal Drainage basins) have naturally high fluoride concentrations. The waters of lakes Tanganyika and Nyasa have overall good water quality except in the vicinity of urban areas, where effluent and storm water cause local contamination, whereas the water quality of Lake Victoria is poor: high turbidity and nutrient levels lead to frequent blooms of algae and infestations of water weeds. Controls of the quality of drinking water fall under the responsibility of local service providers at the point of water production. They refer to Water Quality Standards established for urban and rural areas in the 1970s. A water pollution incident occurred at the Barrick Gold North Mara Mine in May 2009, when acidic water (pH 4.8) seeped from a mine rock storage facility into the Tigithe River, which is used for irrigation, bathing and as an unprotected source of drinking water.
