Increased withdrawal of groundwater, has led to rapid depletion, quality deterioration, subsidence, loss of lakes and associated biodiversity in various parts of the world causing concern to users and groundwater managers. For countries in Africa to meet their Sustainable Development Goals on water, they have to deal with water scarcity, pollution and accelerated declines. In the recent years the central Kenya rift has experienced reduced groundwater levels and changes in water quality related to over abstraction in some parts, sustainable management of the groundwater, requires interventions guided by a proper understanding the dynamics and trends within the aquifers due to recharge and abstraction of groundwater. This requires collaboration between scientists and groundwater managers.
