 The new gravity scheme targets overhauling the existing water supply system at a cost of over Kshs1.6 billion, to meet the town’s future demand of up to the year 2025. The new system will have a raw water intake upstream of the present source on River Lusumu, some 28 kilometers from Mumias town. The existing system with a capacity of 1,215m3 per day will also be rehabilitated and used to serve the adjoining lower rural areas by gravity. The project has a new reinforced concrete tank constructed at Ekero near Mumias town with a capacity of 5,000m3 to boost water storage and supply in the center.

Under the new scheme, the present distribution network will be expanded to a 13.030km and 14.750km long ferrous Pipe of 600mm and 500mm in diameter respectively, and increase the production of potable water from the current 1,618m3/d to 15,000m3/d.

The Mumias Water & Sanitation Supply project will increase production of portable water from the current 1,618 to 15,000m3 per day against the projected demand of 14,769m3 per day, and expand service to 154,235 people.

Construction works for the new supply was preceded by minor rehabilitation works to the existing water treatment works and distribution network to ensure optimum operations till the new Project comes on line.

The new Mumias Water Supply and Sanitation project has been funded jointly by the Government of Kenya and the World Bank through the International Development Association. The construction works which are being undertaken by a Chinese firm Jiangxi Zhongmei Engineering Construction Co. Ltd and supervised by Mangat, I.B. Patel and Partners Consulting Engineers, is expected to be completed by April 2013.

Presently, Mumias Municipality is served by a combination of Surface Water and Groundwater Systems. The main Surface Water Source is the River Lusumu, which flows along the Southern Boundary of the Municipality.

The present distribution comprises of a 1.7km - 50mm diameter, a 5.4km 50-100mm in diameter and a 4.6km 100-200mm diameter pipeline network in the municipality. This will be expanded to a 13.030km and 14.750km long ferrous Pipe of 600mm and 500mm in diameter respectively, and increase production of potable water from the present 1,618m3/d to 15,000m3/d. This will surpass the current demand for the town and its environs.
