The following Problems Facing the Tana River Projects
- Shortage of capital to purchase spare parts which has interfered with maintenance of
machinery in the power house.
- Fluctuation of the water levels of R. Tana due to drought in the catchment areas and
evaporation due to flowing through the dry Nyika region which affects power
- Siltation of dams which occasionally blocks the tail race tunnels leading to a low
volume of water and dredging is required which is expensive.
- Inadequate skills and technology which causes failure to maximise on power
