Operation & Sanitation

The City has no proper sanitation system and liquid waste of the city is put into river Swat due to non-availability of proper sewerage system. Similarly, Mingora city, having approximate population of 0.300 million but have no appropriate solid waste dumping site.

The population of Mingora increased from 38499 in 1972 to approximately over 0.200 million in 2010 thus necessitating development of a master plan for disposal of liquid and solid waste for the city. Unfortunately, the plan could not be implemented yet.
