INFORM CONSUMERS OF WATER SUPPLY TIMING IN ISLAMABAD

Short description 

CDA need to coordinate with WAPDA on schedule of power outages and inform citizens about changes in supply timings.

Crisis statement 

A substantial amount of Islamabad’s water is supplied through tube wells. The CDA tube wells pump water to a sump from where it is again pumped to the overhead tank for further distribution to the consumers in various sectors of the city. Unfortunately due to the energy crisis in the country, the unprecedented power shortages cause’s disruptions to the supply of water to those areas which are largely dependent of ground water. Therefore, it becomes almost impossible to adhere to the supply timings fixed areas. This causes great inconvenience to the consumers who are waiting for the supply of water for filling their tanks and buckets etc.

Needs statement 

If there is a system that would informs consumers in advance of their water schedules it would enable citizens to about the revised timing of water supply in some advance time so the consumers adjust their water related chores accordingly instead of calling & rushing at the offices for inquiring about the supply timings and complaining about an inaqequate provision of service.

Impact statement 

The system will reduce the frustration of consumers and the advance notice about timing of supply will ease the pressure on complaint centers and satisfy the consumers. The system will also help CDA to inform citizens about water shortages and water rationing.

This is a great, really specific, well stated problem!

Do you think CDA and WAPDA would be willing to join the discussion and talk about what efforts they have tried in the past to notify people?  What type of connectivity do most of the consumers have?
