Water and Domestic Uses

Access to adequate and reliable water supply is one of the key indicators of socio-economic development. In 2014/15, Ministry of Water undertook programmes geared towards increasing the number of households with access to a reliable water source. Some of the initiatives undertaken by the ministry in collaboration with county governments and stakeholders in the water subsector include: rehabilitation and expansion of existing water supply schemes, construction of water storage dams and pans, and; drilling of boreholes across the country. Subsequently, the scope of water supply coverage was expected to increase to 55.9 per cent of the total population in 2014/15 compared to 53.3 per cent in 2013/14, according to Economic Survey 2015. Water coverage in urban and rural areas was expected to improve to 65.4 and 48.8 per cent of the population in 2014/15, from 61.7 and 47.1 per cent of the population, respectively, in 2013/14.water-tower5
