The supply of contaminated water is posing threat to residents of Gool, Ramban. The residents alleged that they are forced to consume contaminated water being supplied by Public Health Engineering Department (PHE) thus posing serious threat to their health and the health of their children.
The locals alleged that the matter has been brought to the notice of concerned higher authorities several times but nothing has been done to sort out the problem.
They alleged that the water supply pipes have been damaged in many areas, and at many places, they are leaking due to which dirt and other contaminants get mixed with the water being supplied to the residents of Ramban Town.
People alleged that despite installing the filtration plant by the administration, the problem of contaminated water is still persistent and people are forced to use dirty water.
The members of civil society have requested District Development Commissioner to intervene in the matter and direct the concerned authorities to ensure supply of safe drinking water to the people.
