KACUWASCO (KAKAMEGA COUNTY URBAN WATER AND SANITATION CORPORATION) is the successor of Kakamega County Water and Sanitation Company (KACWASCO). KACUWASCO is a County Corporation pursuant to the Kakamega County Water Act.  Kakamega County took over provision of water and sanitation services from Lake Victoria North Water Services Board (LVNWSB) from 1st July 2016, following the separation of the joint operations of the water supplies between Kakamega and Busia Counties; in line with the Constitution of Kenya 2010, that mandates provision of water and sanitation services to County Governments.

The population served with clean, quality and enough water in Kakamega is about 253,983 against current population of 319,266 in the service area. This population is mainly in the urban areas as per Service Provision Agreement (SPA), but the total population of Kakamega County is approximately 2 million.

Kenya’s Vision 2030 for Water and Sanitation is to ensure that improved water and sanitation are available and accessible to all by 2030. Kenya’s Constitution entrenches water as a constitutional right by establishing a right to reasonable standards of sanitation and clean and safe water in adequate quantities. The Water Act 2016 aligns the water sector with the constitution. The Act defines roles and responsibilities in the delivery of water and sanitation services within the devolution framework.

The Kakamega County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) provides the strategic direction and priorities of Kakamega County. It envisions “A wealthy and vibrant county offering high quality services to its residents”. Provision of quality water and sanitation services are critical to achieving the County’s vision by providing sustainable access to adequate clean and safe water in a clean and secure environment.

To achieve this, KACWASCO has had a Strategic Plan aligned to the objectives of the County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP). In order to achieve its vision and realize its mission, the Corporationwill focus to achieve the following Strategic Objectives for the period 2017 – 2021:
• Increased coverage through water and sewerage infrastructure development
• Enhanced operational efficiency and customer service
• Improved financial sustainability
• Strengthened institutional capacity
• Effective corporate governance
