Sanitation For All: Kenya Sanitation Conference 2019

The Kenya Sanitation Conference 2019 kicked off on 28th to 31st October at the Kenyatta International Conventional Centre in Nairobi. The Conference aims at providing practical and innovative solutions towards the containment, collection, conveyance, treatment, disposal and re-use of waste water and sludge in both rural and urban settings. The theme of the Kenya Sanitation Conference 2019 is “Sanitation for All”

NYEWASCO MD Peter Gichaaga presented the Company’s case as a panelist on Financing Sanitation Solutions for the underserved at the Kenya Sanitation Conference 2019 on 30/10/2019 attracting a lot of interest from the participants. The Conference is shifting attention to the Sanitation sub-sector which needs a substantial amount of resources and effort so as to catch up with Water sub-sector. We are targeting to increase sanitation coverage from 28% to 38% by close of 2019 through OBA and UBSUB projects.

Sanitation Standards in Nyeri Town Get a Boost

The OBA phase 1 project which involved the construction of sewer extension infrastructure is complete. The company has embarked on OBA phase 2 project which involves the physical connections of customer’s households to the sewer line. This is in a bid to increase the sewerage coverage from the current 25% to 35%. The company is committed to improving the sanitation standards of residents of Nyeri-Central Sub County and its environs.

Advantages of the OBA project

  1. a) Upgrading the quality of life

The quality of life and the hygienic conditions where the sewer system operates have already improved. The operation of the sewer system has relieved residents to a great extent from the previous problems of emptying septic tanks every now and then. It has also presented the much needed relief from having to maintain the septic tanks and has provided a much healthier and appropriate way to manage liquid wastes.

  1. b) Preserving the Natural Environment

Previously, sewage waste was discharged into septic tanks which might have caused pollution of the ground water of the areas where such waste was discharged. With the operation of the sewerage system, the waste water is directed to the waste water treatment plant in Kangemi where it is treated and discharged back to the eco system. The company also produces treated sludge which is used as manure by farmers. This has contributed to environmental conservation and promoted the culture of recycling.

  1. c) Increase Revenue

The project targets approximately 3000 households in new sewer connections. In addition to improving the sanitation standards of these households, these new sewer connections will increase the revenue of the company by an estimated Ksh 3 million per month when fully completed.

  1. d) Capacity Building

The staff members who have been working hand in hand with the contractor in the implementation of the project have gained meaningful experience which is helping them in the maintenance of the sewer system.

  1. e) Creation of Employment

One of the conditions given to the contractor undertaking the works of constructing the sewer infrastructure and connecting individual customers to the sewer line was to involve the community in provision of unskilled labour. This has provided a source of income to many young people hence increasing good will from the surrounding community.

Nyewasco Seeks Effective Ways of Provision of Water in Informal Settlements in Nyeri Town

Witemere pilot ATM water kiosk is ready and vending water to the residents of Witemere informal settlement in Majengo Sub Location, Nyeri Central Sub County. The water ATM will help the residents to access clean and safe drinking water  in the area. This is in a bid to combat water borne diseases as well as save them time which they use to acquire water for domestic use. This is one of the project that the company has undertaken to improve  universal access to water and sanitation services in low income areas in tandem with her Pro- poor policy.  The constitution of Kenya 2010, United Nations Sustainable Development goal number 6 and Vision 2030 express the right of every citizen to access to clean, safe drinking water. It is in this perspective that NYEWASCO is exploring innovative technology such as automation in water supply so as to ensure quality life to the less privileged members of the society. The Water Atm dispenses a minimum of 10 litres which costs ksh 1 and 20 litres of water at a cost of 2 Kenya shillings. The pricing has been reduced to the bare minimum so as to ensure that the residents of this area afford the water and none of them will be locked out of the program.
