CDA suspends staffer for wasting water

 
June 11, 2021

Islamabad : The administration of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has initiated disciplinary action against its staff members who have been found wasting ‘water resources’ on unnecessary works despite the shortage of water in the ongoing summer season.

According to the details, the CDA received a complaint by a resident about its staff members who used water from their tanker to wash garage and outer area of a private house.

The complainant maintained that the people seeing all this happening also showed their dissatisfaction over the act of the CDA’s staffers.

An official said the CDA could not tolerate such kind of violation of the rules and all those staffers who are involved in this illegal act would face strict action by the administration.

It is pertinent to mention here that the residents of the capital city usually face water shortage in the summer season but influential people are often seen using their links to enjoy uninterrupted supply through water tankers.

The CDA centres are receiving hundreds of phone calls daily from the residents for the supply of water tankers and it is really very hard for the civic agency to address all these complaints.

There are a number of suggestions being discussed to increase the supply of water through alternative sources because the demand for water in Islamabad is growing with each passing year.

The official said, “They have suspended driver of the tanker with immediate effect and are conducting an inquiry into this incident.” In his message to the residents, he said, “We urge all the residents to keep pointing out whenever they notice any such violation. It is our collective responsibility to protect and manage our natural resources.”
