The Kibera Town Centre [KTC]has provided water and waste water treatment in the Kibera slum of Nairobi since July, 2014. This paper outlines the operational and engineering successes and failures in this four-year period, and describes the design, implementation, and operation of a real-time data acquisition system to support both operations and research. A primary research objective is to evaluate new technologies suitable for total potable reuse in a slum setting, inviting collaboration in the design of water quality sensors and data analysis systems.
