NCHR takes notice of contaminated water supply to Islamabad

ISLAMABAD: The National Commission on Human Rights (NCHR) has taken notice of the shortage of water, the supply of contaminated water and the lack of a water policy for the federal capital.

The commission has also decided to call all stakeholders to find a long term solution for the shortage of water in the capital city.

Last week, the National Institute of Health (NIH) issued an advisory urging concerned authorities to take timely preventative measures to minimize the chances of disease outbreaks before monsoon.

Curious case of water quality in twin cities

Islamabad—Despite a large number of water filtration plants installed at various points, water quality in the twin cities remains a big issue. 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.
