Quality of city’s water supply falls alarmingly

Mumbai:The water Mumbaikars receive from the BMC supply chain has grown markedly dirtier. By the civic body's own admission, of the tens of thousands of water samples it tested in 2012-2013, 19% were found unsafe for consumption. This was far worse than in 2011-2012, when the tally of samples found undrinkable was 16%. 

    All year round, the corporation's engineers and health officers randomly collect 
water samples to study the quality of supply. In 2012-2013, officials gathered 60,726 samples from the 24 municipal wards. Nearly 11,700 of these tested contaminated. And of these dirty samples, 1,474 were found to have the deadly E.Coli bacteria. 
    Equally worryingly, in 20 of the 24 wards, the percentage of contaminated sampl
es had increased over the previous year. C ward, which includes areas such as Pydhonie and Bhuleshwar, was revealed as the area receiving the dirtiest water from taps.
