Significant Progress in Water Project in Nakuru West Sub-County


County Executive for Water, Environment, Energy, Climate Change, and Natural Resources, Dr. Nelson Maara, along with Kapkures Ward MCA Hon. Robert Kiplangat, spearheaded an inspection of the Mogoon Resource Center Water project in Kapkures Ward, Nakuru West Sub-County. This project, which involves borehole drilling, capping, and pump testing, is poised to revolutionize water access for residents in Mogoon, Kapnandi, and Kapkures villages.

Once completed, the Mogoon Resource Center Water project promises to be a game-changer for over 2000 residents in the aforementioned villages. With an impressive water capacity of 14.2 cubic meters per hour, the project is expected to address the longstanding water scarcity issues faced by the community.

During the inspection, Dr. Maara underscored the importance of effective management for the sustainability and efficient operation of the water project. He emphasized the significance of handing over the project to NAWASSCO (Nakuru Water and Sanitation Services Company) to ensure that all residents have access to clean and reliable water, in alignment with the vision outlined in Governor Susan Kihika’s manifesto.

The presence of key officials such as Sub-County Administrator Pamela Tum, Sub-County Water Officer Stephen Waweru, and Ward Administrator Bill Kiptoo underscores the collective commitment to the success of this vital project. Their involvement signifies a coordinated effort to address the water needs of the community comprehensively.

The benefits of the Mogoon Resource Center Water project extend far beyond improved access to clean water. It promises to enhance the overall quality of life for residents by mitigating health risks associated with waterborne diseases and reducing the burden of fetching water from distant sources. Additionally, the availability of reliable water supply will support agricultural activities, leading to increased productivity and economic empowerment within the community.

As the project progresses, stakeholders remain optimistic about its transformative impact on the lives of residents in Mogoon, Kapnandi, and Kapkures villages. Through collaborative efforts and strategic planning, the County Government of Nakuru is poised to achieve its goal of ensuring access to clean and sustainable water for all its residents, reaffirming its commitment to promoting community welfare and development. Stay tuned for further updates on this promising initiative.
