ISLAMABAD: The capitalís rural area of Saidpur model village is facing an acute shortage of water for domestic use.

According to the locals, the water supplied is also impure. Residents have demanded authorities to ensure constant water supply to the area. In addition to the problem of water scarcity, dirty water from the high-end hotels located on the Margalla Hills mixes with the water of the streams flowing down to the village.


Rehan Abbasi, a resident of Saidpur village, said the route of sewerage water was a serious threat to the village residents. He said they have asked CDA to separate the route of sewage water from the streams so that supply of clean water might be enabled to the area.
