Water scarcity in Karachi

With all this rain water pouring from up above, there’s a bad news for Karachiites.

KESC has refused to cooperate with the Water & Sewerage Board and hence Karachi is expected to face intense water scarcity.

Heard this on Radio while coming to work. So one after another, first it was KESC’s ankhmacholi, then came the storm news, then rain and wind storm and now it’s water.

Good luck!

    thanx to recent rains there is enough water in hub dam for almost 3 years of usage by karachiites .. only 10 feet more to go till it fills up to its brim and then they’ll start releasing the water into ‘hub nadi’ (canal) …

    pumping stations do need electricity to pump water to karachiites and there are still problems with kesc which i think they might resolve shortly

    The news in the air is KESC will be re-nationalized soon, I am not sure would that make matters worse or better.
