Nairobians rejoice as Ndakaini dam water levels increase

Nairobians are in a celebratory mood following reports that the water levels at Ndakaini Dam has increased.

Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company acting managing director Nahashon Muguna confirmed on Monday that the water levels at the dam had increased following heavy rains in the Aberderes range last week.

The confirmation came days after Nairobians online questioned why every part of the country was experiencing floods apart from Ndakaini dam.

Mr Muguna told Standard newspaper that the dam received 8.580 cubic metres per second on Saturday, adding that the dam currently has 25.866 million cubic metres of water.

“Heavy rains come towards end of months April and early May and we hope the facility will harvest to the maximum,” he added.

Nairobians welcomed the news but urged that more be done to ensure all rain water in the Aberdares region is harvested.
