Comparative assessment of road runoff harvested water quality and that of other water sources in Kenya

This research was aimed at analyzing the differences in physical-chemical water parameters
of road runoff harvested water compared to water obtained from other sources. A case study
was done in Makueni County. Specific objective was to gain insight into whether and how road
runoff water has different water quality characteristics compared to water not coming from a
road. Focusing on trends in physical and chemical parameters of water-related to the different
types of use. Furthermore, possible purification methods are identified in case this proved
needed. Overall this adds insight into the potential of the harvesting and storage of road runoff
water for different purposes of use. Read the full report Mulatya RRHWQC “Kenya”
