Tanzania is endowed with numerous and diverse water resources in the form of rivers, lakes, wetlands and productive aquifers. Having known the importance of water resource, the government in 1989 through the Water Utilization ((Control and Regulation) Act No. 42 of 1974, Amendment No. 10 of 1981), the Minister for Water gazetted nine (9) water basins for the purposes of water resources administration and management. To facilitate basin activities Water Resources Management Division was established. The activities of the basin including issuing of  water use permits, managing  water resources in an integrated and comprehensive manner, which ensures equitable, efficient and sustainable development of the resources, the department also do surface and groundwater resources assessment and exploration, Water Resources Planning and Research, Regulatory, Enforcement and Environment. This section highlights the boundaries of the nine basin although some of them are international drainage basins.
