Sh1.7billion pumped into water projects in Bomet

Bomet County has initiated many projects worth billions to ensure that its residents have access to clean, fresh, and reliable water supply.

During the marking of world Water day in Konoin, Governor Barchok affirmed that his administration is focusing to improve water access by linking every sub-county with the County’s main grid water system.

“Water, as a precious commodity, remains our key focus as a government as we aim to improve access to clean and safe water for our population,” stated the governor.

Barchok noted that his administration is in the process of accelerating change in the water sector, “We take note of the challenges the sector faces but we also take pride in our achievement and success so far. We shall do more as we aim to achieve the SDG’s goal number six which aspires to provide safe and clean water for all by 2030”.

To achieve the sustainable development goal, the County has initiated many ongoing projects which include the KES 1.7B Bomet-Mulot water supply by the Lake Victoria Water Works Development Agency funded by the African Development Bank.

The governor further revealed that his administration is also expanding the supply line of Kaboson-Kaptarakwa-Chepkeskwaet in Chebunyo Ward in collaboration with the World Vision.

A good number of water sustainable projects aimed at relieving residents have also been commissioned at Kaptebengwet and Taboino water projects in Konoin Sub- County.

“These two will bring us closer to our goal to sustainable provision of water to our people. Other projects that we have completed and ready for commissioning include Kipngosos, Siroin, Kiprobonyit, Cheptangulgei, Kiptulwa, Marinyin, Old Sigor Pump station-Siongiroi-Chebunyo line, Nogirwet Supply among others,” explained Barchok

“We look forward to more success as we put more efforts and resources to this very significant sector as we aim to have everyone access clean and safe water by 2030 as per the SDGs,” he said.
