Karachi’s Water Unfit for Human Consumption

19 Jul 2017 by Local Press Report

Up to 90% of water supplied in Karachi is unfit for human consumption due to the presence of bacterial contamination. A new report, based on laboratory analysis of water samples collected from surface and underground water sources from different parts of the metropolis, was submitted to the judicial commission headed by Justice Muhammad Iqbal Kalhoro. The commission was constituted by the Supreme Court to investigate authorities’ failure to provide clean drinking water and poor sanitation conditions in Sindh.
