A report by a surveyor hired by Seefar Apartments owners says the buildings are not on riparian land.
The tenants hired Kolmans Geomantic consultants to determine the proximity of the apartments to Nairobi Dam.
The consultant stated that the shortest distance point on the embankment to Seefar apartments is 42m.
The 12-storey building has 288 units of two and three bedrooms.
Nema and the Water Resources Authority in a notice dated September 12 to Edermann Property – the developer – said the building is on Nairobi Dam’s riparian reserve.
The consultant used survey data from the survey of Kenya Headquarters in Ruaraka.
The survey was to determine the horizontal distance between the highest point of Nairobi dam`s embankment and Seefar apartment.
Mithamo findings state that Seefar Apartments lies within the cadastral boundaries of LR No.209/12108.
“It was determined that the highest point on the crest of the dam is approximately above sea level,” Mithamo added.
He said that the ground levels of the apartments are approximately 1657.72m above sea level.
“The longest distance from the distance on the embankment to Seefar apartments is 54.98m while the shortest distance is 42.00m,” he added.
