UP- SCALING OF BASIC SANITATION FOR THE URBAN POOR (UBSUP)

March 23, 2017

NAKURU COUNTY SANITATION PROGRAMME (NCSP)

Most (peri) urban low income areas (LIAs) of Nakuru County are poorly planned and sanitation infrastructure is inadequate. The access to improved sanitation facilities is low, with 46% for Nakuru Town and 53% for Nakuru County (Maji Data, 2012). Out of the existing toilets, 51% are unimproved pit latrines. Due to the sandy soils in Nakuru town, pit latrines contaminate ground water through faecal sludge and urine that percolate to the ground water table.
