IIUI water supply remains disconnected
Islamabad: The International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) is
without water after the Capital Development Authority (CDA) discontinued the
supply over a year back.
"The civic body last June abruptly discontinued the university's water supply
without any notice or warning. There have been several meetings since then but
the water supply has not been restored," said an official with the IIUI.
The university has three tubewells in running condition; another two are
being installed to meet the increasing water demand on the campus – all from the
university's own budget.
"The shortage is troubling the management and the students. It's going to be
a while before the other two tubewells will become operational but the
university will still need sufficient water to meet the needs of nearly 22,000
to 23,000 students and staff on the campus. "We have nearly 12,000 students who
are children of the taxpaying citizens of Islamabad and Rawalpindi and they need
this basic service," the official said.
According to IIUI, the university followed CDA guidelines to lay a water
pipeline specifically for this purpose costing Rs4.6 million over 11 years
Worst even was the fact that unlike all other sectors there was no water
filtration plant on the campus, the official said, adding how CDA had confused
priorities – spending millions on widening the Kashmir Highway when residents
were without even clean drinking water.
"The authority has installed filtration plants in every sector even in
jungles and they have water for the H-9 nursery but not in Sector H-12 home to
thousands of students," the official said.However, CDA spokesman Ramzan Sajid
said the civic authority was not bound to provide water to the university.
"There is no such agreement in writing. In fact, it was made clear that the
university would install tubewells to draw water for its requirements."
According to the official, CDA had to discontinue the university's water
supply because the source was running dry.
There had been protests when the water supply was cut off, said the CDA
official, adding this was exactly what the authority had explained to IIUI that
it would have to produce its own water.Water for IIUI is not the only concern
for its administration. The university has no service to take away its solid
waste produced by 20,000 students and staff every day.
"A CDA garbage truck used to go there and take away rubbish from the campus
but that too stopped service recently," the official said, adding how fumigation
on the campus was as important as in other sectors. Dawn
