NOWSHERA VIRKAN- There is only one water filtration plant in Nowshera Virkan city for the population of about 80,000 people and the sole plant cannot meet the needs of the populace.

The local people demanded four to five more plants in the city.

The single water filtration plant was installed eight years ago. After that, the government and the local politicians did not pay any attention to the issue.

Moreover, the drinkable water is being supplied through rusty and damaged pipelines which are causing spread of various diseases like hepatitis and diarrhea. These diseases are spreading rapidly.

A senior journalist of the city demanded that the authorities concerned should install more water filtration plants in the city on urgent basis.
