The filtration plant facility provided by the government in Islamabad is a good step. As it is said that tap water in Islamabad is not hygienic. So are we sure that the water in these plants is clean?
I will tell you the answer and you can test it by yourself too. One day me and my sister filled a 20 liter can from the water filtration plant. after two or three days when the water was finished from the can she noticed a thick black layer of something, on investigation it was concluded that it was a black layer of dirt. We assumed that she might have forgotten to clean the can before filling it up. Next time a, after taking necessary precaution. You know what…the result was exactly the same.
Now the question arises that the government provides us with facilities but then why they forget to keep check and balance?
The dirt in the plant is dangerous and the water can create diseases such as Gastro, Hepatitis etc. we who face the problems mostly keep our mouths tightly shut and assume that someone else will work for it, but we should not forget that they are also one of us.
What we can do is at least write our problems to the concerned authorities as in case of water problem we can write to the “Director of Water and Sewerage System”. If then, they do not take necessary steps to control the problem, they are the one to be blamed but not before that.

    I am from Karachi and visiting Islamabad these days.

    Imagine what the rest of the country will be like if the capital has such flaws in the administration.

    Can you share with us where this filteration plant is located ? Have you contacted the local administration ?
