Abstract
The results of several hundred analyses carried out by the Kenya Government Chemist [1] have shown that there is a very considerable variation in the fluorine content of water in Kenya. In some areas the fluorine content is as high as 100 p.p.m.: whilst in others it is less than 1 p.p.m. This figure may vary markedly within a given area it may fluctuate or remain extremely constant for any given water source. This is evident from studies conducted on the Lord Delamere Estate at Elmentaita where weekly sampling of one borehole over three years showed a very stable fluorine content of 17.1 ± 1.5 p.p.m. whilst other boreholes on the same estate showed considerable variation in their fluorine content.
