 Water Treatment Processes

Raw water abstracted from the sources is treated at the water treatment plants to remove sediments, bacteria, and other impurities through conventional water treatment processes - Aeration, coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration and disinfection.

After the final treatment, the water leaves the treatment works and is stored in contact tanks before being released to the distribution network.

Water Distribution

 The clean water is then released through our network of pipe linescomprising of various sizes of pipeline ranging from 600mm diameter steel pipes to 12mm diameter uPvc pipelines that deliver water to our customers.

 

Quality Assurance

 

To ensure that the quality of water supplied to the consumers meet the required standards, the company has a quality assurance section whose mandate is to collect and analyze samples from designated points within the distribution network. The results of the analysis are compared with the KEBS and WHO standards for compliance.
