An entire family in Jayanagar 4th Block, Bangalore, suffered from diarrhea after they drank contaminated water. Their drinking water contamination was caused by a leakage in the sewage line which seeped into the water sump. The reason for water contamination was confirmed by an official from Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (refer TOI 16th May 2015, Bangalore Ed). The BWSSB has started investigating – hope the issue will be resolved at the earliest. Water contamination due to various reasons is quite common in the city putting people’s health in danger. Consuming the tap water directly isn’t a good idea. When the water is contaminated with sewage, even purifying it will not help. Go for a packaged drinking water (big cans) until the issue is resolved and the tap water becomes worth drinking. It is advised that the tap water should be purified using a good water purifier before drinking. It is better to be safer than suffer. Read more here : http://bit.ly/2sx8PW2
