Training for the Water Sector started in 1960 with a unit in the Hydraulic Department of Public Works to train water supply operators. In 1970, the unit was upgraded to a training section under the same Department. When the Water Department was transformed to a fully-fledged Ministry of Water Development in 1974, the training section became the Water Development Staff Training School. In 1985, the Institute became a national water training institution and was henceforth referred to as Kenya Water Institute (KEWI). An Act of Parliament to establish the Kenya Water Institute was enacted by Parliament in 2001 and assented to by the President on 31st December 2001. According to the KEWI ACT (No.11 of 2001) the Institute is a semi-autonomous corporate body serving the entire water sector in Kenya. The Applied Water Department was merged by training to form the new KEWI in 2003.
