Water level measurement - Water Monitoring Station, Sondu Basin.
"Citizen science is a good idea because you find that we cannot actually be everywhere. So if the community can actually assist us in collecting the data, then that one is a plus on our side. The main challenges that we normally encounter when we are doing this monitoring is in terms of finances, because you know to generate water quality data is an expensive process, because we require the instruments, we require the chemicals. So at times you find that you want to do the monitoring but the necessary chemicals that are need to generate the data are not there." – John Njungo (Water Quality and Pollution Control Officer, Water Resources Authority, Ministry of Water and Irrigation).
