Karachiites continue suffering from water loss

KARACHI: Karachiites are suffering in pursuit of water as city administration claims that K-Electric breakdowns at pumping stations are the result of technical faults rather than deliberate power cuts. On the other hand, K-E desires immediate huge amount of recoveries of arrears from Karachi Water & Sewerage Board (KWSB).

Commissioner Karachi Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui on Wednesday claimed that no load-shedding was being carried out at KWSB pumping houses as the breakdowns were results of technical faults only.

KWSB Spokesperson Nazeer Mateen said a long breakdown by KE on Wednesday at Dhabeji Pumping House had deprived the citizens of 195mgd water and its after effects would be felt until the next 72 hours.
