    Effects of soils, vegetation and land use on infiltration
    rates and related soil physical properties of the semi-arid
    Sirima and Hukogodo catchments in Laikipia district were
    investigated. Representative six soils in Sirima and four
    soils in Hukogodo, surveyed at detailed level, were assessed.
    Within soil types, four site condition treatments with respect
    to vegetation cover and land use designated as Tr_ee/Bush _(TB),

    discharge rate of 99242 m3/year (9.9 X 104 m3/yr). It is based on field and
    laboratory analysis of water quality parameters.
    The subject matter includes the assessment of land use processes
    responsible for water quality deterioration. These include Industrial and
    Agricultural activities. The study demonstrates how useful industrial
