More than 2,500 residents of Mumias sub-County will enjoy clean piped water with the completion of the KES1.8 billion Mumias Water Supply Project. The project aimed at boosting water supply and sanitation services in Mumias Municipality and its surroundings through a new gravity scheme, designed to meet future demand by 2025.
