Muktsar, October 9

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, getting potable water has become a major problem for residents of Muktsar district. In the past nine months, over 45 per cent water samples have failed the potability test in the district.

A perusal of the records procured from the Health Department revealed that 42 of the total 93 samples collected this year had failed the potability test. "We conduct the tests of bacterial contamination randomly. When the test report comes negative, the officials concerned are asked to take corrective measures or change the source of water. The re-sampling is done after some time to check the water quality," an official said. — TNS
