Saving Lake Naivasha water

10 March 2014, 17:05 Chepkwony Robert

Nairobi -  It will not be business as usual for those using water from Lake Naivasha as the Water resources Management Authority (WRMA) moves to regulate use of the lake’s water.

Rose Ang’eya, the WRMA Rift region manager, said the decision to launch the Lake Naivasha Water Allocation Plan will protect the water body.

Ang’eya said Lake Naivasha had been witnessing use of water from mainly flower farmers hence the need to regulate these farmers.

Speaking during a the launch ceremony over the weekend, Ang’eya said it will ensure that water catchment areas within Lake Naivasha as well as water from the lake are regulated.

“We would not be happy to see a drying lake that is the source of Kenya’s revenue through tourism hence the move to regulate water usage,” said Ang’eya.

Chair of the Lake Naivasha Water Resources Users Association Enock Kiminta praised the idea saying it was in a bid to ensure that the lake, which suffered in the 2009 drought, is saved from water scarcity.
