According to sources, the unplanned growth of the provincial metropolis has caused a slew of issues for WASA, including the lack of a proper sewerage system for newly built housing schemes. People, they said, were also having problems due to the lack of a sewerage system.

After Chungi Amarsadhu, most of the housing societies on Ferozpur Road lacked a proper sewerage system. Similarly, several residential areas along Raiwind Road and Canal Bank Road (following Johar Town) are experiencing the same problem.
