Challenges facing water quality regulations enforcement in Kenya


• Blanket standard for water of different qualities (classification of water bodies is not yet done)
• Lack of adequate wastewater treatment facilities countrywide
• Attitude of regulated community on license fees that they are high/not necessary
• Lack of adequate sampling and monitoring equipment by regulated facilities
• Reliability on external laboratories
• Over lap of some aspects of mandates for instance between Water Resources Authority (WRA) and NEMA on waste water
