Water is an essential resource in ensuring the survival of man and is required for different activities and this includes industrial activities. However, most industrial activities in Kenya are one of the major contributors of water pollution caused by their discharge of effluents into these water resources. This study evaluates the adequacy of the laws set to regulate and prohibit the discharge of effluents by industries, and further assesses its adequacy in ensuring proper implementation of the regulations as well as compliance by the industries. In addition, it carries out a comparative study with Malaysia's legal framework and additional measures and techniques taken to ensure implementation and compliance. Finally, the study makes recommendations that the Kenyan legal and institutional framework should model to ensure compliance.
