Recently, a good level of bacteria, arsenic, dangerous element has been found in water supplying by Wasa. It cannot be denied that already supplied unhygienic water may cause health risks and trouble dwellers life.
City dwellers are passing their days with an anxiety for scarcity of safe and clean water. Water issues should not be neglected by the authority. Because dwellers' healthy life more or less depends on the water they drink daily. Unclean and polluted water will be the reason of many water diseases. It is a matter of sorrow that the negligence of concerned authorities is depicted clearly. Dwellers' life may fall in danger, if they do not seek out an effective and permanent solution. It is needless to say that government should ensure safe and hygienic water for the city dwellers immediately.
