Seventy-five model tubewells will be installed in Gujranwala to supply clean drinking water, Water and Sanitation Authority Managing Director Khalid Bashir Butt said on Monday.
The announcement came after the MD received several complaints about the lack of clean drinking water and lack of cleanliness at tubewells. Talking to reporters, the MD said that there had been incidents where Wasa machinery and other equipment was reported stolen from tubewells. The new tubewells would be monitored and provide clean drinking water to the citizens, he added. The tubewells will be installed at a cost of Rs4.8 million. To begin with, a tubewell has been installed in front of the commissioner’s office. In the first phase, 20 tubewells will be installed. By June, 2013, the rest of the tubewells will also be installed. Each tubewell will have a security guard.
