Baringo Water Supply Project is part of the grant agreement between the Governments of Kenya and Japan for construction of two water projects in Baringo and Narok counties. The Baringo water project will involve construction of facilities that would enhance the water supply system in North Baringo, Central Baringo and Marigat. The project is expected to provide clean water to a population of approximately 25,000 people in Baringo. The contract was awarded to Tone Engineering Corporation. The project is scheduled to be completed in March 2016.

Baringo is one of the 47 counties (prefectures) in Kenya with a population of over 550,000 people. It is located in the former Rift Valley province. It is home of great ridges and valleys, diverse cultures, world class athletes, breathtaking tourist sites and scenes, not forgetting immense mineral and energy potential.
