It was conceived back in 2006 to help combat perennial flooding at the lower Nzoia areas, while diverting the water and using it for irrigation. The project will increase acreage under irrigation from 2,000 acres currently to 10,000 acres to boost food security. Of this, 5,000 acres is expected to be under high value crops and the other 5,000 acres under rice and food crops to benefit 12,000 households. In addition,  at least 34 km of dykes will be constructed besides River Nzoia to prevent bursting of water banks.
