The construction work on the proposed Koru-Soin multipurpose dam on river Nyando, in the western region of Kenya, is set to begin in September 2020.

The tenders for the project have been closed for evaluation till August 2020 after which the site will be handed over to the best bidder to start the work.

The National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) has granted interim approval for the project and the National Water Harvesting and Storage Authority (NWHSA) is currently working with the National Land Commission to ensure that the project affected persons are compensated for the loss of their land.

The project covers approximately 2,500 acre of land, equal to a total of 360 parcels of which 230 are in Kisumu county and 130 in Kericho county.

The Koru-Soin multipurpose dam is designed to control flooding, supply water for domestic and industrial consumers in the city of Kisumu and the satellite towns of Ahero, Awasi, Muhoroni, and Koitaburot, and supply the existing irrigation schemes of Ahero and West Kano, and generate power at an associated two MW hydropower plant.

Upon completion, the project is expected to provide 1,02,000 cu mtr per day of water to a population of 1.71 million and to end water shortages in the neighboring counties of Kericho, Nandi and Kisumu.

It will also act as a sediment trap, reducing sediment build-up downstream, which is the main cause of flooding and ensure regulation of the river flow, thus providing water for irrigation all year round. The reservoir will also offer opportunities in fishing and water-based tourism activities.
