Karachi, June 03, 2013 (PPI-OT): Managing Director Karachi Water and Sewerage Board has directed that Grand Operation against Illegal Hydrants would continue till all illegal hydrants are shut down. In this regard Deputy Managing Director KW and SB has been directed to formulate more teams to carry out the operation.
During the ongoing hydrant operation in Baldia Town KW and SB teams have shutdown 55 illegal hydrants by 5th day of operation along with illegal hydrants running from residential buildings. Motors and other equipment have been confiscated during the operation.
Illegal hydrants were also operating from houses in Baldia town and several illegal connections were acquired from KW and SB main lines. The operation has been carried out with the help of Area Police and Authorities.
Later on, MD KW and SB requested D.I.G West and Deputy Commissioner West to see to it that illegal hydrants shutdown during the operation are not allowed to start their operations again. These illegal hydrants cause shortage of supply in Baldia Town and adjoining areas.
