Just to give you a small idea what this is all about: stand on the bridge to Garissa (where we did the river gaugings), look down at the water, wait there for ~30 seconds and you’ll have an idea of the amount of water which is consumed by the ++66.000 people in Garissa city area (= 30 seconds of discharge on Tana River are a lot during high floods).
