The Institute of Engineers Kenya at The Northern Collector Tunnel Phase 1
The Institute of Engineers Kenya comprising of more than 250 engineers from across Kenya converged at the Northern Collector Tunnel to have a snippet of the 4th Nairobi Water Supply. The project encompasses the Northern Collector Tunnel Phase 1, Kigoro Water Treatment Plant and Raw and treated water transmission pipelines.

Kiragu Chege, CEO Athi Water Works Development Agency, Directors and The IEK secretatriat. They were able to understand the intrigues of tunnel construction from experts in tunnelling and appreciate behind the scenes works that take place to enable Nairobi and its environs to have sufficient portable water.
