Half of water Samples have faecal contents: Survey of Lahore

It is shocking but true that about half of the city's population has been drinking water having faecal contents, and even those living in the so-called posh areas are not exempted. According to the Institute of Public Health, waste discharged from bowels (faeces) has been found in about half of the drinking water samples collected from almost all parts of Lahore. The samples tested by the institute were sent to it by different agencies including the city district government during the first two weeks of the month.
