I thank the Lord Almighty for the opportunity of a memorable and a fruitful period in Eldoret Water and Sanitation company limited (ELDOWAS), Eldoret.

My gratitude goes to everybody who offered me any assistance and encouragement in one way or another in my practical training at ELDOWAS. My sincere thanks go to Maseno University academic staffs that have imparted their vast knowledge, especially Dr. Ben Akalla and Professor Raphael Kapiyo who assisted me in my Industrial Attachment unit. It is through their valued support that I was able to get my training. Many heartfelt thanks for their support.

Many thanks also go to the staff of ELDOWAS for their unwavering support and for giving me a chance to be part of the ELDOWAS family. Worth mentioning is the invaluable support and guidance that I constantly got throughout my Industrial Attachment. I express my deep gratitude to Mr. Reuben Kizito despite his many duties agreed to lead my training. His guidance, his remarks and relevant suggestions have been immense in carrying out this training. My thanks also go to Mr. Philip Kosgey Kimaiyo and Mrs. Dorothy for their advice and encouragement. Special thanks also go to the Acting Director of Quality Assurance, Mr. Edwin Mengich.

I owe the successful compilation of this report to all those people who were constantly beside me, cheering me on and supporting me all the way during my training and life in general.

Finally, I would like to extent my heartfelt gratitude to my family members especially my father and mother Joseph Koitum and Alice Chebii, my Brothers Daniel Yator, Dickson Kwemoi ;and Collins Kipchirchir, my sisters Purity Korir, Christabel Chebet and Emmanuela Cheruto and Maseno University classmates and other friends for their invaluable support (moral, financially and otherwise) throughout my training.

ABSTRACT

National Industrial Training Authority (NITA) has a general mission to provide the Public Institutions with efficient organization and human resources to fit the objectives of best public service delivery at low cost; and to set up a fair working environment, based on international standards of health and social security, and favorable to jobs creation and labour market development. Its Head Office is located along Commercial Street in Industrial Area- Nairobi, Kenya.

Industrial Attachment was introduced to instill the students with practical, technical skills as a partial fulfillment for the award of Bachelors Degree and to introduce the students into working life after the period of lectures. My training was a requirement of partial fulfillment for the award of Bachelor Degree in Environmental Science with Information Technology (IT) organized by Maseno University through National Industrial Training Authority (NITA).

The training allows the student to link the theoretical principles learned in final years in order to attain an award of a Bachelors Degree. It gives to the students the practical skills and the work environment philosophy to use their skills and principles learned in lectures to serve the institutions and the society in general.
