Not only it is unfit for drinking we can't even use it for bathing and washing clothes, they told. A number of complaints similar in nature have come from other parts of the town. It was found that the water coming from the taps which are adjacent to the drains are mostly contaminated.

In some parts of the town, the water pipes are very old and the distribution lines passing through sewer lines and open drains are aggravating the chances of  water contamination due to seepage of the sewage in the pipes. The contaminated water add more woes to the worsening town's sanitary situation. The contaminated water causes a major health scare in town. The people are more worried and demanded immediate action on the issue. The officials of Public Health Department (PHD), Jeypore informed the media that, they are working over the complaint and taking immediate action to solve the problem.
