WSSP organises awareness sessions on water, sanitation

PESHAWAR: Urging masses to conserve water and keep their surroundings clean, the Water and Sanitation Services Peshawar (WSSP) on Wednesday held awareness sessions in different localities of the city.

The sessions titled “Public Dialogue on Water and Sanitation” were organized by Citizen Liaison Cell (CLC) in Nauthia Jadeed, Bhanamari and Akhunabad union councils to create awareness on the importance of water and sanitation. The WSSP has been organising an awareness campaign under the ongoing UNICEF project on water and sanitation.

Local elders, traders, ulema and WSSP officials, including Manager Solid Waste Manager Gauhar Ali and Basit Khattak CLC Muhammad Ismail, participated in the sessions.

The officials listened to their complaints regarding water supply, sanitation and sewerage and assured them of a timely solution.

WSSP officials in their discussion highlighted masses’ responsibilities in cleanliness of the city and conservation of water.

They urged them to register their connections to avoid inconvenience like disconnection and fine in future.

They said that illegal connections are a major cause of damage to supply lines and water contamination.

“A single illegal connection damages the line and contaminates water supplied to the entire locality,” said Gauhar Ali, manager Solid Waste.

The officials said that the company was replacing old and rusted supply lines while consumers’ complaints were being resolved within a specific timeframe.
