38 filtration plants go dysfunctional due to negligence of CDA.
ISLAMABAD -- As many as 38 filtration plants have gone dysfunctional in federal capital owing to negligence of CDA and the citizens are forced to drink toxic water.
In backdrop of war of maximum share grabbing in civil works between member engineering CDA and DG Works most of the plants are lying out of order and no attention is being paid to make any arrangement for their repairs.
Sources said that filters of 32 out of 38 filtration plants have not been changed and citizens are forced to drink contaminated water. CDA chairman has not taken any step for checking of water samples taken from these plants and change of filters despite Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif orders.
PCWR had declared water of different filtration plants toxic in different sectors of federal capital after checking samples of water but CDA is not realizing gravity of the matter.
Citizens have demanded of CDA to take immediate measures for changing filters of the filtration plants and ensuring repair work saying that CDA criminal negligence may lead to eruption of chronic abdominal diseases.
