Effects of water hyacinth on water quality of Winam Gulf, Lake Victoria OceanDocs
Osumo, W..
Lake Victoria is the second largest freshwater body in the world by surface area. It is important for the livelihood of people living in the area. The lake is currently facing many problems, one of which is macrophyte encroachment mainly the water hyacinth, Eicchornia crassipes. Winam Gulf is a large inlet from Lake Victoria that extends into Kenya. In order to study the effects of water hyacinth on water quality in the gulf, measurements of water properties were made in the north-eastern corner of the gulf, when the area was covered with hyacinth in March 2000. The hyacinth was then cut and dumped on the bottom during the period June to beginning of August when all water hyacinth had been removed with measurements being made again in July. Water...

Water hyacinth has in the recent past had an adverse socio-economic impact on the lakeshore communities of Lake Victoria, particularly in the Winam Gulf. Fishing, lake transport and water supply have been seriously affected by the water hyacinth. KARI’s efforts at mitigating this disaster have so far been in the form of a twopronged management strategy consisting of physical and biological measures. The local administration has been involved in mobilizing the local communities to remove water hyacinth manually at strategic sites. However, there have been a number of constraints, mainly community attitudes to self-help activities. The Kenya Industrial Research and Development Institute (KIRDI) has developed a prototype mechanical harvester in a KARI-funded...
