Abstract
The Shimba Hills are important as the source of water supplies for the town of Mombasa and vicinity. There is now a programme to conduct the waters of Mzima Springs to Mombasa by pipeline. However, the completion of this programme will not lessen the need for local water resources. The Coast area south of the Kilindini estuary, where import ant industrial expansion is already under way will depend upon local water supplies. Hence catchment management to provide maximum yields of water from the Shimba Hills will always be important to the coastal area.
