SCHEDULE the lake naIVasha manaGement Plan The Lake Naivasha Management Plan (hereinafter referred to as the Plan) is a community-based initiative, spear-headed by the local community and supported by other stakeholders and institutions with common concerns and commitment to the sustainable management and development of the lake ecosystem.

The Plan has been developed to ensure that adverse impacts on the lake ecosystem are minimised and corrected while addressing identied conservation issues for which there is a large degree of consensus.

The Plan shall be implemented by a special committee known as the Lake Naivasha Management Committee (hereinafter referred to as the Committee), comprising key stakeholders and institutions through the development and implementation of sectoral codes of conduct in consultation with various sectors.

The Committee shall ensure adoption of, and compliance with the codes of conduct.

The Plan emphasises that all developments within the declared Lake Naivasha Ramsar Site and the lakes catchment shall be subject to Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), as per the provisions of the Environmental Management and Co-ordination Act, 1999.

The Plan is a dynamic tool that shall be subject to periodic reviews, depending on emerging issues and new knowledge.

The Plan addresses sustainable management issues of the Lake Naivasha environment and the natural resources within the declared Lake Naivasha Ramsar Site and the wider catchment as set out here below: water use The Plan shall regulate and control water use by the following measures (a) determination of modalities of water allocation and establishment of water use policy; (b) utilisation of all available information to update the water budget; (c) monitoring the lake levels, rainfall, river ows and evaporation to Environmental Management and Rev.

3 H3 Flammable Liquids The word ammable has the same meaning as inammable.

Flammable liquids are liquids, or mixtures of liquids, or liquids containing solids in solution or suspension (for example paints, varnishes, lacquers and others but not including substances or wastes otherwise classied on account of their dangerous characteristics) which give off a ammable vapour at temperatures of not more than 60.5C, closed-cup test, or not more than 65.6C open-cup test (since the results of open-cup tests and closed-up tests are not strictly comparable and even individual results by the same tests are often variable, regulations varying from the above gures to make allowance for such difference would be within the spirit of this denition).

4.1 H4.1 Flammable Solids Solids or waste solids, other than those classed as explosives, which under conditions encountered in transport are readily combustible, or may cause or contribute to re through friction.

4.2 H4.2 Substances or wastes liable to spontaneous combustion Substance or wastes which are liable to spontaneous heating under normal conditions encountered in transport or to heating up on tract with air, and being then liable to catch re.

4.3 H4.3 Substances or wastes which, in contact with water emit ammable gases; substances or wastes which, by interaction with water, are liable to become spontaneously ammable or give off ammable gases in dangerous quantities.

5.1 H5.1 Oxiding Substances or wastes which, while in themselves not necessary combustible, may generally, by yielding oxygen, cause or contribute to the combustion of other materials.

6.1 H6.1 Toxic or Poisonous (Acute) Substances or wastes liable either to cause death or serious injury to the human health if swallowed or inhaled or by skin contact.

6.2 H6.2 Infectious substances extremely hazardous to health Substances or wastes containing viable micro-organisms or their toxins which are known or suspected to cause disease in animals or humans.

8 H8 Corrosives Substances or wastes which, by chemical action, will cause severe damage when in contact with living tissue, or in the case of leakage will materially damage, or even destroy, other goods in the means of transport; they may also cause other hazards.

99.H10 Liberation of toxic gases in contact with air or water Substances or wastes which by interaction with air or water, are liable to give out toxic gases in dangerous quantities.

9 H11 Toxic (delayed or chronic) Substances or wastes which, by interaction with air or water, are liable to give out toxic gases in dangerous quantities.

Substances or wastes which, if they are inhaled or ingested or if they penetrate through the skin may involve delayed or chronic effects, including carcinogenicity.

9 H12 Ecotoxic Substances or wastes which, if released present or may present immediate or delayed adverse impacts to the environment by means of bio-accumulation and/or toxic effects upon biotic systems.

9 H13 Capable, by means, after disposal, of yielding another material e.g.

leachate which possesses any of the characteristics listed above.
