Faisalabad is the third biggest city in Pakistan and the second biggest in Punjab after Lahore. The population of the city has grown drastically from 70,000 in 1947 to 3.2 million presently. The River Ravi flows about 40km to the South East of the city while the River Chenab flows about 30km to the North West.
The quality of groundwater in Faisalabad except for some localities near Rakh Branch Canal is not fit for human consumption. Potable water was introduced in the city in 1903 and other waterworks were augmented eventually. Filtered water was first supplied in 1939 and a partial sewerage system was introduced in 1960. It provides facilities to the population of over 0.2 million. The Faisalabad Municipal Corporation managed the water supply and sewerage system in the city up to 1978.
WASA or Water and Sanitation Agency is a subsidiary of Faisalabad Development Authority. It was established in 1978 under the Development of Cities Act 1976. It is responsible for providing and catering to the water supply, drainage, and sewerage needs of the city.
The WASA Faisalabad is administratively aligned to the Government of Punjab’s department; “Housing Urban Development and Public Health Engineering Department.” WASA Faisalabad covers an area of 225 sq km which includes 113 urban union councils of four towns providing facilities to over 2,60,000. WASA provides 60% of the city with water services and about 72% of the city with sewerage services.
