MetadataShow full item record
The first section of this thesis examines previous water studies in Kenya and other parts of the world. It also reviews relevant literature and attempts to interpret available water data. Methods adopted in the entire study are also outlined in this section. The major physical controls of groundwater chemistry in Kenya are dealt with in the second section of this study. This does not, however, mean that these are the only factors that control the groundwater chemistry in Kenya. Section three which is perhaps the most important part in the thesis is devoted to the examination of the relationship between groundwater chemistry and themajor physical controls. It also analyzes problems of water quality necessary for water resource planning and development in Kenya.
