CHITRAL: The chief engineer of the public health department has ordered an inquiry into the leakages in water supply lines from Golen valley to Chitral town.
The probe was ordered after reports about the faulty pipes were published in the media.
A spokesman for the department told this correspondent that most of the brown leaking pipes shown in the pictures were laid to supply water from the valley for irrigation purposes. He said two supply lines coming from Golen for drinking water were working properly.
He explained that the leakages in these pipes are not water but air bursting out of the air walls. When water does not flow in full pressure in the pipes, air makes its a way out of the special air wall, he claimed. –GH Fraooqui
