leakage hence resulting in less water supply to their

homes. Residents around main chowk Sopore are

facing tough time due to water leakage from a

damaged water pipe resulting in waterlogging in the

heart of Apple town.

The damage of the water pipe has also created

water shortage in main town. People alleged the

leakage is happening since two months and blamed

PHE department of being in deep slumber.

“They don’t pay any heed towards the damaged pipe

line and the leakage that too in the heat of town”,

said one of the local resident Mohammed Shafi Lara

said.

Residents also said PHE department has failed to

restore the damaged water pipe lines in main

chowk, Down town, Iqbal market, Chankhan and

other areas of sopore town. 

The transporters, shopkeepers, commuters and

vendors in main chowk face problems when they

pass the area due to a huge pothole created by the

water leakage.

A major supply line recently bursted at main

chowk area of Sopore and flooded the entire road

stretch.

The Public Health Engineering (PHE), has failed to

repair the leakages even as the matter was brought

to its notice several times by local residents.

Meanwhile when The Varmul Post contacted

Executive engineer PHE Sopore, Mohammad shafi

said the PHE department has pressed engineers and

other manpower into the service to repair the

damaged pipeline.

“We have already taken it into notice and all these

damaged pipes will be restored soon”, Exen PHE

Sopore said.
