Rawalpindi: The authorities concerned of Water and Sanitation Agency (Wasa) Rawalpindi have been directed to ensure the supply of clean drinking water particularly during Sehri and Iftar time.

According to Managing Director, Wasa Muhammad Tanveer, the supply of clean drinking water to the citizens was being ensured from the filtration plants during sehri and iftar time. Steps were also being taken for immediate repair in case of malfunction of tube wells, he said. The MD said like other parts of the country, the citizens here were also facing water shortage, which was mainly due to the decrease in the level of underground water and lack of timely construction of new water reservoirs.

In this situation where Wasa was making every possible effort to provide clean drinking water to the citizens, it was also the responsibility of the citizen to use water carefully and try to save this priceless blessing of Allah Almighty, he added. He urged the citizens to come forward and play their due role to conserve water. He also asked the citizens to cooperate with Wasa and pay their water and sewerage bills on time. The MD further said that in order to save and prevent wastage of water, WASA had improved the quality of water and taken measures to eliminate underground water leakages.
