Karachi: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah formed a high-powered task group on Sunday to combat water theft, take action against illegal hydrants, and fix leaks in the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) system.
CM Shah convened a second meeting at his official residence concerning the city’s current water problems and directed task force members to begin their campaign within the next two days.
Local Government Minister Syed Nasir Shah will lead the task group, which will comprise members of the CM’s Special Assistant Waqar Mehdi, Karachi commissioner, pertinent deputy commissioners, police chief, KWSB Vice-Chairman Najmi Alam, and others. The aforementioned squad will take firm action against unauthorized connections and hydrants.
LG Secretary Najam Shah informed the gathering that the KWSP infrastructure began with Keenjhar Lake and progressed to a bulk water supply network that transported water to reservoirs and pumps. In response, CM Shah asked the board to install meters to measure the amount of water given to citizens from Keenjhar up to the distribution network to collect precise data on losses.
Mr. Shah believed that a monitoring system based on population density was essential for water supply across Karachi. He also requested that a meter system be developed directly from the Hub source.
