Rawalpindi - In order to cope with anticipated flood situation, Water and Sanitation Agency (WASA) has cancelled the leaves of all field staff. They have been directed to remain alert during Eid  days, said Managing Director WASA Raja Shaukat Mehmood here.

Talking to this agency, he said that dredging of Nullah Leh is underway to prevent any flood like situation in the monsoon season and would be completed by July 7.

He said heavy machinery including Suction pumps, Jetting Machines, Sewer Cleaning Machines, dewatering sets and water boozers are fully operational and deployed at four Flood centers located at Liaquat Bagh,  Moti Mahal, Bagh Sardaran and Khyaban-e-Sir Syed.

He advised the residents not to dump waste in the Nullah as it disrupts the flow of water in the city’s main sewerage line. He said the area from Katarian upto Gawalmandi would be cleared by July 7.
