Construction Work To Kick Off On Koru-Soin Dam

The construction of Koru-Soin Dam in Kisumu, Kenya, is set to begin after an agreement was reached between the National Water Harvesting and Storage Authority (NSHA) and the community living on the land earmarked for the project.

The Koru-Soin multipurpose dam is designed to control flooding, supply water for domestic and industrial consumers in the city of Kisumu and the satellite towns of Ahero, Awasi, Muhoroni, and Koitaburot; supply the existing irrigation schemes of Ahero and West Kano; and generate power at an associated two MW hydropower plant.

Upon completion, the project is expected to provide 1,02,000 cu m per day of water to a population of 1.71 million and end water shortages in the neighbouring counties of Kericho, Nandi, and Kisumu.
