World Water Day Marked with the Launch of River Telemetric Stations

The effect of climate change globally is taking a toll on water resources. Many communities are experiencing receding water levels in reservoirs, rivers, and lakes as temperatures rise, and rainfall patterns shift.

To effectively and efficiently manage the depleting water resource, the Water Research and Resource Center (WARREC) based at JKUAT in collaboration with Water Resource Authority and The Nature Conservancy (TNC), installed 6 telemetric river gauging stations in the rivers feeding Ndakaini and Sasuma dams. The stations were launched during the World Water Day celebrations in Ndakaini Dam, March 22, 2019.
