Athi Water Services Board (AWSB) has announced it is looking for a contractor to build a new dam in Gatundu. The dam will complement the three others supplying Nairobi and its environs.
This will see the Government meet rising demand for fresh water.
Karimenu II Dam will have a daily capacity of 76,000 cubic metres. It is expected to sustain demand for areas like Kiambu, Juja, Ruiru, and the Export Processing Zones.
