Welcome to Karuri Water And Sanitation Company.
Karuri Water & Sanitation Company is a limited liability Company, which was registered in 2007 and started its operations in June 2008 as a Company fully owned by the defunct Karuri Town Council. After devolution came into effect, the Company is now fully owned by the County Government of Kiambu. The County plays the oversight role to ensure that the County’s mandate on delivery of services of Water & Sanitation is met and exceeded as envisioned by H.E the Former Governor of Kiambu County.
Karuri Water is among eight Water service providers within the County. Karuri Water area of jurisdiction is the whole of Kiambaa sub-county covering the five wards namely; Kihara, Ndenderu, Muchatha, Karuri and Cianda. The water sector in the Country is a regulated industry to ensure consumer protection. The mandate of regulation is vested on the Water Service Regulatory Board.
The Company started its operations with one borehole in Banana which was being operated by the town council then. The number of active accounts were 70 connections.
Over the years, and with the assistance of the Council then, the County Government, the National Government through state agencies like AWWDA, WSTF, and WASREB, the company has been able to grow its customer base to the current over 10,000 connections. This was achieved by rehabilitation of stalled Community water projects which were scattered within the constituency, development of new sources and extension/rehabilitation of the distribution networks.
