Nairobi: The Kwale county of Kenya has mapped a total of 1,007 water points and 129 piped schemes. According to recent report developed by the Central Water Service Board (CWSB), 58 % of all mapped water sources fall under improved points sources while 42 % fall under unimproved points sources.
“The report is a result of effort from the government, Coast Water Service Board, Smart Development Works Netherlands, local provincial administration and rural communities in Kwale, among other stakeholders. The aim of water point mapping in Kwale is to gather up-to-date records of existing public rural water points to support informed decision making. It will help in planning, implementation and monitoring in rural water supply sub-sector,” said James Thubu, CEO of the (CWSB).
