In addition, the municipal town of Bomet situated close to Nyangores River lack adequate sanitation facilities, these might have greatly degraded the water quality through discharge of raw faecal matter into the river. Another notable area of concern is the nearby Tenwek Mission Hospital whose waste water lagoons are located close to the bank of the same river with their waste effluents being directly disposed to this river. Such waste disposal methods create point and non-point sources of pollution with different degrees of pollution. This study investigated the effect of human settlement and development on the microbial water quality of Nyangores River at various points along its river channel based on the intensities of human settlement and development.
