Water Supply

Safe and clean drinking water is the most vital amongst all municipal services. Water is essential for a number of domestic needs. Water sector mainly covers the management of the basic resource of water including storage, transportation, access, environmental protection, and infrastructure as well as services involved in providing water to consumers and removing wastewater safely. Water is a diffused sector and pervades many other social and economic domains.

As per a source, about 20% of the whole population of Pakistan has access to safe drinking water. The remaining 80% of population is forced to use unsafe drinking water due to the scarcity of safe and healthy drinking water sources. Above 80% of the people of province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) are utilizing clean drinking water that comes from surface and ground sources. In KP, surface water resources are clean and fit for drinking.
