There is an increase in exposure of water sources to faecal
contamination as a result of expanding anthropogenic activities in
Lake Naivasha basin in Kenya. This contamination exposes water
users in the region to a variety of health risks. This study
investigated faecal pollution of community water sources (lake,
rivers and boreholes) within Lake Naivasha basin through
determination of the concentrations of total coliforms, Escherichia
coli, intestinal enterococci, Clostridium perfringens and
heterotrophic bacteria in various water sources using Membrane
Filtration Technique (MFT) and Heterotrophic Plate Count (HPC)
procedures. The potential of solar pasteurization in disinfecting
domestic water was also explored by heating known volumes of water
samples in a black solar box cooker at given time intervals. In
addition, determination of E. coli to intestinal enterococci ratio
was used in faecal pollution source tracking. Physico-chemical
parameters were measured in situ for all water sources.
