Abstract
All the weirs and flumes in the experimental catchments were built by the respective Departments of Water Development in the three countries as part of the joint programme. An account of their construction, and the people taking part, is given in the previous Special Issue (Pereira et al., 1962). Apart from routine maintenance, the only major work involving the gauging structures has been the installation of improved water-level recorders in the Kimakia and Kericho catchments and the laboratory calibration of the Atumatak flumes at the University of Nairobi and at the Hydraulics Research Station, Wallingford, U.K. A brief description of the structures follows, with some discussion of the difficulties experienced in their operation.
