This was stated by Wasa Managing Director Syed Zahid Aziz here on Wednesday. He disclosed that water supply to the city from tube-wells under the JICA Project was 56 million gallons a day, while eight million gallons water was being supplied from the tube-wells along Rakh Canal and one million gallons from Millat Town water works.

He said that the Wasa was carrying work over three ongoing water supply projects, including 15 million gallons project funded by the French government, five million gallons from tube-wells along Rakh Branch and 10 million gallons from Jhang Khanuana project. He disclosed that a huge amount would be spent for increasing one million gallons water supply per day to Faisalabad. He said that the Wasa had also started the ‘tanker service’ for water supply in a number of towns, including Rahim Town, Shahbaz Garden, Jail Road, Sindhu Town, Allama Iqbal Colonly, Warispura, Feroze Shah and Karim Town. He said that the service was being provided from 8am to 4pm daily.

The Wasa managing director said that the JICA of Japan would provide equipment worth Rs one billion to the Wasa which include the disposal station pumps, sucker machines and excavators for de-silting and cleaning sewer lines in the city. To a question, Zahid Aziz said that despite devastating loadshedding in the city, drinking water to citizens was being supplied for seven hours a day, i.e. two hours in the morning and noon and three hours in the evening. He said that 120 employees had been assigned the duty for the bills distribution and collection of the outstanding dues from the consumers.
