    Partly yes as far as water is concerned the county has started constructing the mega itare dam but we need a well designed water piping network that can carter for the growing population within nakuru and its environs. So far sanitation is a big issue 1) on storm water drainage ( 2) sewerage system design and management. Political contenders should also prioritize on environmental management strategy(blue print)
