Residents of Cantt board facing severe water crisis



The water crisis has become severe in various areas of Rawalpindi Cantonment Board as the underground water level is depleting sharply.

According the residents, about one year ago, the water was easily found from 200 feet to 400 feet underground but now water has depleted in the range of 600 feet due to which many government-run tube wells have stopped functioning in many areas.

Sources privy to the development say only six to seven thousand cusecs of water was available through tankers from the tube wells.

The water is supplied only for one hour at different times in rotation for different areas.
