    Change in Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) is inevitable and accuracy and time are important
    to detect the change in different seasons to monitor trends and status of water quality.
    Understanding LULC and Water Quality Parameters (WQP) is necessary for efficient water
    management and reduction of operation water treatment cost. Therefore, the effect of
    agricultural land uses on water quality in Ndakaini, Gatanga, Muranga County, the LULC and
    WQP were analyzed using Remote Sensing (RS), Geographical Information System (GIS) and
