Water supply and sanitation in Tanzania is characterised by: decreasing access to at least basic water sources in the s (especially in urban areas), steady access to some form of sanitation (around 93% since the s), intermittent water supply and generally low quality of service. Many utilities are barely able to cover their operation and maintenance costs through revenues due to low Continuity of supply: Mostly intermittent (17 out of .   But officials from the Rufiji Water Basin Office (RWBO), which administers the Ruaha basin, along with academics from Tanzania's leading Sokoine University of .

The Rufiji is Tanzania’s most important river. The basin covers a fifth of the country, providing an estimated mean annual runoff (MAR) of billion m3 (or an average flow of m3/s) at the potential dam site of the Stiegler’s Gorge, some km upstream of the river mouth.

The Rufiji basin covers an area of about km 2 (about 25% of the total land area of Tanzania), and drains the Southern Highlands into the Indian Ocean. It comprises four major rivers: the Great Ruaha, Kilombero, Luwengu and Rufiji. Within the basin, water scarcity is acute in the Great Ruaha catchment, resulting in very low water levels at Mtera Reservoir, the main regulatory structure Cited by: The Rufiji Basin Survey: Report to the Goverment of Tanganyika on the Preliminary Recoinnaissance Survey of the Rufiji Basin.
