No detailed study on water done in Muktsar

Despite knowing that a large number of people have lost their lives due to cancer and that underground water is unfit for human consumption in most parts of the district, no detailed study of water is done here in the past few years.

Officials of the Health Department and Water Supply and Sanitation Department said they were conducting bacterial contamination tests, but no detailed study was done.

Further, a large number of water samples have failed purity test. For instance, over 36 per cent water samples lifted from January to May-end failed to clear the potability test in the district.

Some locals said the state government should conduct a study so that the proper measures were taken to save people from chronic diseases. “The reverse osmosis (RO) water treatment plants are lying non-functional in a number of villages. The underground water is unfit for consumption and water crisis is deepening every day,” said a village resident.

On this, a senior official of the Water Supply and Sanitation Department said, “Even we are finding it difficult to run RO water plants. The Gram Panchayat Water Supply Committees are not willing to take control of these non-functional plants.”
