"The County and National Government have agreed to stabilise the city as we await the long rains at a cost of Shs 200m. The City County will put in Shs 100m and the National Government Shs 100m. Rigs are already in place and the digging process will commence in the next 2 weeks. Completion of Northern collector will allow flow of 140m litres of water into the city, said Kidero.
The Governor further said that built up capacity in 4 dams has dropped. In January a drop of 7% was experienced. The Shs 200m will go along way in alleviating the water situation in the city. This money will be released to Nairobi Water. Dr Kidero added "We are Looking at opportunities to treat and recycle water for use in gardens and areas that do not require portable water. We urge Nairobi residents to cooperate and only use water when it is absolutely necessary."
