Abstract
The request to carry out an investigation of the soils of the proposed Kambirwa Irrigation Scheme was received from the officer in charge of the Provincial Irrigation Unit (PIU) Central Province Nyeri). It was envisaged by the PIU to up the surplus water from the Wanjii Power Station supply Canal and supply it to the tenants of the proposed scheme through pressure pipes for overhead sprinkler irrigation. This would enable them to grow vegetable mainly for commercial purposes, together with some food crops all the year round.
