Parks to tackle water shortage

Freshwater is diminishing the world over and Pakistan is amongst the top water-stressed countries. In 1951, the water availability per capita in the nation was 5,260 cubic metres/year and in 2010 it was only 1,038 cubic metres/year, according to a Water and Power Development Authority report. Residents in urban areas probably do not realise how precious freshwater is because they have enough available for cooking and cleaning. But globally, there are about one billion people who do not have access to clean drinking water.

Curious case of water quality in twin cities

Its quality and unchecked supply continue to pose challenges to the Water And Sanitation Agency (WASA) in Rawalpindi as well as CDA’s Water Directorate in the federal capital. According to a report launched here Wednesday, out of 120 water filtration plants in Pindi, 11 are supplying water which is unsafe for consumption.

Nearly a decade since the problem began; the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has not been able to come up with a concrete solution to water scarcity in the city. Instead, the authority still supplies water through tankers, an ineffective and controversial solution in the eyes of Islamabad’s residents.
