The purpose of the study was to assess the industrial development and
the state of the natural environment, a case of Abogeta Division Meru
Central District Kenya. The objectives of the study were to assess the
extent to which the establishment of industries have contributed to air
pollution, establish the effects of industrial pollution on water and land,
find out how the establishment of industries has contributed to the
destruction of the natural forests and to assess the impact of industrial
noise on the local population. The methods used for data collection were
questionnaires for both industrialists and retailers and interviews for
selected industrialists. Data was analyzed and presented by the use of
ji·equencies, percentages, tables and pie charts. The findings revealed that
industrial development has led to an increase in air pollution, it has
affected the quality of water and increased land pollution, it has caused
the destruction of natural forests and has resulted to noise pollution which
affects the local population. The study recommended that the government
should pass strict laws that should aim at reducing industrial pollution
and waste products. The government should encourage source reduction,
recycling and treatment of industrial wastes before disposal. The
manufacturers should minimize excessive packing and encourage the use of biogradable materials. The government should specify gazetted areas, produce enough electric power supply to supplement wood fuel and embark on a tree planting campaign.
