KARACHI (PPI): Karachi Water & Sewerage Board (KWSB)is mixing Chlorine as per standards in the water supply, whereas KW&SB field officers also send samples from pumping stations to the latest lab for testing, said KW&SB spokesperson.
Focal Person KW&SB is monitoring Chlorination Process and KW&SB is aware of its professional duties, however if chlorine is found below standard in any far corner of the city it is adjust immediately to ensure public safety.
During last two months no incidents of Negleria have been reported by the Grace of Allah. However, most of the diseases attack places where tanks are not cleaned periodically such as Mosques, Graveyards or even in houses. This increases the threat substantially since fungus is found in such tanks and amoebas grows in fungus.
KW&SB Focal person is in coordination with Committee Members however the impression that Negleria would spread if the Committee is inactive is misleading and false.
During Ramadan millions of citizens have been performing abolition for Namaz, Fasting and other religious tasks at homes, Mosques and Offices yet no Negleria incidents have been reported yet. Due to continuous Chlorination and monitoring Chlorine levels for all areas have been established however to avoid low levels in far corners of the city, KW&SB has also installed Sodium Hypochlorite Plants as well.
