Islamabad- Water experts have warned of water crisis in Islamabad as level of underground water has plunged further due to illegal boring.

The experts said that Islamabad residents could face a sever water shortage in summers if the underground water dipped further due to illegal boring.

Sources in the CDA said that at some places tube-wells have stopped pumping out water as water level has plunged to an all time low.

The water experts said that the capital city could find itself in the grip of water crisis if the authorities did not take urgent steps. The CDA has so far failed to put in place a strategy to conserve water resources and stop illegal boring.
