Plans for the projects are at an advanced stage and are expected to be rolled out in the next few months.

Finance, Design and Build is a financing arrangement where a contractor is selected locally and internationally through a competitive process, the selected contractor individually sources for a loan from its own sources, designs and develops the project, of course with supervision of the Board, and hands over the completed project to the client for operationalization upon completion.

The loan that will be sourced by the selected contractor is secured by the national government, shall be paid with the proceeds from the project once the projects are completed and become operational.

The Kakamega- Bungoma Bulk Water Supply Project, will draw water from River Nzoia near Webuye at Nabuyole falls, a treatment plant shall be constructed at the extraction point; the foot of the Nabuyole falls the water will then be treated at the source and distributed to serve the larger parts of Bungoma and Kakamega Counties, mainly the rural areas. The water produced will also be injected into the existing water supply pipelines in Bungoma and Webuye currently operated by the Nzoia Water and Sanitation Company.

The Keben Dam Water Supply Project on the other hand will rely on water from a multipurpose Dam to be constructed under the project. Once completed, the project will mainly serve Nandi and Kapsabet towns and the surrounding neighborhoods including those along the distribution line, around 60 per cent of Nandi County. Finance, Design and Build is a project development arrangement the Board is exploring as a way of bridging the gap of the dwindling donor funding for its programmes.  “Once we successfully roll out the two projects, we intend to expand this approach to undertake a project in Mt. Elgon, Bungoma-Busia, which is a gravity scheme to serve Bungoma and Busia so that it covers those areas under similar arrangements,” quipped the LVNWSB acting CEO CPA. Anthony Kisaka.
