These aquifers and aquifers elsewhere in Kenya—are not ―managed‖in any true sense; new water allocations are not based on a formal assessment process or a water allocation plan. Indeed, the poor level of compliance by water users in respect to water permits and the payment of water use charges make water allocation an uncertain exercise at best. The groundwater conservation area (GCA) meant to protect the Nairobi aquifer system (NAS) has completely failed to achieve this objective. The complete lack of rational land use planning has meant that attempts to restrict abstraction have been severel constrained by indifference, commercial interests, and a building boom.
