WASH – Mardan

Piped municipal water is available in houses in urban areas. In addition, there are 28 (of 33) working tubewells that are accessible to the general public. The water supply is ensured even during dry periods as 7 overhead tanks, with capacities between 50,000 and 100,000 gallons, help to maintain adequate water pressure in the system.

In general, the water is considered perfectly drinkable. However, in some localities rusted pipes significantly reduce the quality of the water provided. The town management authority is aware of the issue and is attempting to improve the pipe infrastructure.
