The residents of areas along Sarwar Road are longing for water as the branch lines have not been connected with the mainline.
Locals near Chaklala Cantonment Board (CCB) office are forced to hire water tankers to meet their needs. The main water supply line passing through Sarwar Road was completely impaired, after which MES started work for replacing it three weeks ago.
Owing to the disconnection between the mainline and branches, the residential areas, including Sarwar Road and Sir Syed Road from Panj Sarki to Marrier Hasan Chowk, couldn’t get water. Interestingly, CCB didn’t arrange any water tanker supply system for the residents during the supply cut period.
The cantonment board completed the installation of the mainline last week, but it didn’t connect the branch lines with the alternative source. The citizens are being charged by up to Rs1,000 for the water tankers, which originally is the responsibility of the cantonment board under the public supply system. - Posted on : 13-August-2021
