Sindh High Court: Indus River Water Unfit for Human Consumption Due to Pollution


Indus river water is now too polluted for human consumption and other living things, according to the Sukkur bench of the Sindh High Court. The pollution is due to the release of municipal wastewater, industrial runoff, and hospitals’ waste into the river. 

The court has ordered the placement of warnings near treatment plants in district and taluka headquarters cautioning that the river water is not safe for consumption unless boiled. The court has also instructed the formation of a committee to ensure that polluted water is not disposed of into the river and to submit progress reports every two months. 

The committee will be provided with terms of reference, particularly in view of a study carried out under orders of the Water Commission. The court has directed the federal secretary of the ministry of water sources to inspect the river and to stop the release of polluted water into it within two months.
