ISLAMABAD (Online)- The unavailability of water in nine main sectors of the Capital is causing enormous inconvenience to the residents and traders while the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has failed to provide water to population of 0.8 million through 36 water tankers. According to a survey, the water supply in the sectors, including G-7, G-9, G-10, G-11, F-6, I-9, I-10 and H-10 has been suspended for the last two days and to get water has become a huge task for the residents. The inhabitants of these sectors while talking to this news agency said that water with low pressure was available for the last one week but now it has disappeared totally. Long queues of people were seen in front of the Filtration Plant of G-7 Markaz as no water is available. The hotel owners of Sector G-11 have informed that 1 water tanker is provided to 7 hotels, which is insufficient to meet their requirements. CDA Directorate while talking to this news agency informed that all possible steps are being taken to ensure supply of clean water to citizens but 60 percent water was wasted due to old pipelines. The Capital's authority has 52 tankers and only 36 can be used and the Water Directorate has requested the high officials to provide more facilities, they added. According to CDA officers, a mega project of water supply would be started soon and the water shortage would be controlled in 2010, adding that old pipelines are being changed. CONTAMINATED WATER SUPPLY (APP): The supply of contaminated water to the Federal Capital is going unchecked by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) which is detrimental to people's health. The Authority has been neglecting cleansing of water channels in the Federal Capital and faulty pipelines have further aggravated the situation. Sewerage water mixing in the drinking water pipes through broken pipelines which causes water-borne diseases among the residents like diarrhea, hepatitis and stomach disorder. About four decades old water supply system needs complete replacement. The Authority allocated rupees 150 million in its budget 2007-08 for replacement of the system but like many other projects of the Authority this is also pending. The residents of G-7, especially offices at Zero-Point are facing the problem of contaminated water supply. A resident of sector G-7 Mazhar Buttar said, "We have already been facing water shortage but now supply of contaminated water has further added our worries." He said "We take drinking water from filtration plant but some times  due to loadshedding we could not get water even from there." He questioned, "if CDA cannot replace or maintain the existing  pipelines then why it charges money from us on account of water bills." When contacted a CDA official he said the water supply which comes from Simly Dam to the Federal Capital is filtered from two filtration plants, which he said are 25 to 30 years old. He said the broken or dilapidated pipelines are aggravating the  situation, but CDA has installed water filtration plants in almost every sector of the Capital for provision of clean water to the citizen. The residents of the Federal Capital have demanded of CDA to immediately take measures for provision of clean drinking water to the residents.
