Karachi Clamps Down on Water Theft: Joint Operation Targets Subsoil Disguise

Karachi is cracking down on rampant water theft through a second phase of a joint operation led by the Sindh Rangers and the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board Corporation (KW&SB).

Key points:

  • Clean drinking water: Officials uncovered large-scale theft of clean drinking water, disguised as subsoil water, and sold for commercial purposes.
  • Focus on low-line areas: The current phase targets the theft of fresh water masquerading as subsoil bore operations, focusing on low-line areas under the Garden police station.
  • Significant impact: The operation restored 4 million gallons of water daily, preventing a monthly loss of Rs. 300 million.
  • Stolen water source: Estimates suggest annual water theft at Rs. 2 billion, with initial reports indicating stolen water originates from a 33-inch water board line and sold for commercial gain.
  • Increased water supply: Following the operation, Lyari’s Mira Naka saw a water supply increase from 2 feet to 6 feet.
  • Ongoing effort: Paramilitary forces have apprehended 165 suspects and removed 204 illegal hydrants through 93 operations.
  • Comprehensive approach: The operation aims to eradicate all illegal hydrants and freshwater theft in the city.

This joint effort marks a significant step towards addressing water scarcity and ensuring fair access to clean drinking water for all Karachi residents.
