Contaminated Water Hits Thousands In Pakistan City

Nearly 30,000 people in the Pakistani city of Faisalabad have been affected by contaminated water, an official said recently. //

The number of victims of water-borne diseases, which broke out as a result of supply of contaminated water in Ghulam Muhammad Abad, seems to further increase as more people are being hospitalized.

The work for replacing the old water pipeline in the affected area is also underway.

'we have taken precautionary measures to stop supply of the contaminated water. The officials of the water department will also be questioned and taken to task if found guilty,' said Mohammad Nawaz, a senior official in the Punjab water ministry.

He said the matter has been noted by the federal government for an investigation.

'The federal minister (for water and power) Liaqat Jatoi has taken notice of the incident and has ordered an inquiry,' Nawaz told IANS.

He said the main reason behind the contamination is the old supply line.

'We will replace it and see the results before taking action against any official,'he said.
