Acute shortage in CDA's water supply system irks residents.
ISLAMABAD -- Due to acute shortage of water in Capital Development Authority's (CDA) supply system of the federal capital for last so many weeks, the residents were facing problems.
A resident of sector G-10, Kashif Ahmed said 'I have been residing in this sector for last so many years but this time we had experienced the acute shortage of water supply and received water supply for about after 48 hours.
He was of the view that water is considered to be the basic amenity of life but 'I think the body concerned was not aware of this fact.'
Another resident Sana Khan of sector G-8 said, 'Water through CDA's supply pipelines was not coming properly on time, even sometimes it comes at the evening for a short period of time and the flow of water was not up to the mark too.
The residents of federal capital said that they were availing water through private water tankers on heavy payments besides CDA water tankers.
They urged the authorities concerned to improve the water supply system in different sectors including I-9, I-10,G-7,G-8, G- 9,G-10,G-11,
When contacted Capital Development Authority (CDA), Director of Water Management said the main reason of acute water shortage supply this year was due to less rainfall during current season.'We were focusing on the maintenance work of leakages of water from pipelines and repairing defective walls.'
He said CDA has 33 number of water tankers out of which 20 tankers were functional.
He said that Khanpur dam has only 5mgd water level due to which residents of federal capital were facing acute shortage of water supply this year.
'We were trying to facilitate residents in the upcoming week of June and to get better improvement in the month of July,' he added.
