The Kenyan water sector underwent far-reaching reforms through the Water Act No. 8 of 2002. Service provision was gradually decentralised to 91 local Water Service Providers (WSPs). These were linked to eight regional Water Services Boards (WSBs) in charge of asset management through Service Provision Agreements (SPAs) with the WSPs. In April 2017, the Water ACT 2016 was enacted. The new Act repealed the water Act 2002. The new law aligned national water management and water services provision with the requirements of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 particularly on the clauses devolving water and sanitation services to the county governments.
