Patiala, February 24
Even after one month of the diarrhoea outbreak, residents of the focal point area in Rajpura are not getting safe water. Meanwhile, water samples of the Star Enclave in the Focal point area have failed test for the third time in a row.
Six water samples failed the quality test on Monday. With this, 25 water samples of the focal point, where the diarrhoea outbreak was reported on January 18, have failed the test.
The Civil Surgeon, Dr Satinder Singh, has written to the Deputy Commissioner to issue directions to the department concerned to provide safe water in the affected area because of the threat of another diarrhoea outbreak.
“First, we collected water samples on January 18 and 19, which failed the test. Thereafter, we collected water samples on January 31. Unfortunately, the samples continue to fail test,” said the Civil Surgeon.
Water Supply and Sewerage Sub Divisional Officer Karandeep Singh said: “The repair work is still under way. Earlier, there were leaks while now the main sewerage line in the area has caved in. We have stopped water supply in the evening.” — TNS
