Water Supply

Provision of potable water is perhaps the most vital amongst all municipal services. We depend on water for drinking, cooking, washing, carrying away wastes, and other domestic needs. Current water supply system of the city is insufficient for the population of more than 0.300M. Several congested localities of Mingora have been facing acute water shortage for last many years. The affected areas are Malookabad, Rang Mohallah, Aziz Abad and some other residential areas. These are the most populated neighbourhoods of Mingora town with more than 90,000 population, but only four tube-wells are operating, providing drinking water to just 14,000 people.

The existing tube-wells were installed in 1970 for a population of 13,600 people, and since then no new water scheme was launched. adding five to six more water sources were urgently required to cater to the needs of such a huge population of the city.

WSSC Mingora is working on emergency basis to make the nonoperational tube wells operational and add more water sources such that water supply systems must meet requirements for public, commercial, and industrial activities. In all cases, the water must fulfill both quality and quantity requirements

Water Quality Tests

Keeping in view the public health and to avoid water borne diseases, all 42 water tanks were Cleaned and Chlorinated  to maintain  residual  chlorine i.e.  0.2 mg/l as per WHO standard.  In addition  to this more than  400  Rft Pipes relocated  from drains and other vulnerable points. Aqua tabs were also provided to community for the treatment of water on household level. Vulnerable points were also identified  for testing of water quality.  More than  9 water  quality samples were collected from  different  points and tested through  PCRWR  and were found satisfactory for drinking.

Disconnection of illegal water supply connections

Illegal  Connections  not only affect  Revenue  of the  Company  but also mislead  to  efficient strategy towards  future  plan to  be under taken  for  better  Water  Supply  System.  WSSCS Management is very keen regarding elimination of Illegal Connections and total  1624 Illegal Connections were disconnected while hundreds of Connections were regularized and fines were charged from those having Illegal  Connections
