37% of water samples from Sangrur schools not potable
15 Jan 2015
Hindustan Times


SANGRUR: Notwithstanding tall claims by the state government of providing potable water in all government schools, especially in rural areas, the students of several government schools are being forced to drink water with bacterial contamination and fluoride content, which is harmful.

Health authorities seem to have turned a blind eye, as several schools in the district are still serving unsuitable water.

The authorities concerned had collected 172 samples from several government schools of all seven blocks of the district last year. Out of these, 63 samples failed the test, while 107 of them were found potable. These tests were conducted at the state public health laboratory, Chandigarh.

An official from the health department said that the failed samples had high fluoride content. He, however refused to give detail of schools but said that most of the samples, which failed the test were collected from Moonak subdivision of the district.

District health officer Surinder Singla refused to comment over the issue.

T he health de par tment claims to have written to the heads of the schools to take necessary steps to provide potable water to the students.

In cases of high fluoride content, the school principals had

been asked to shut the current water source and arrange some alternative source.

A government school headmistress, on condition of anonymity, said, “We are not able to send the water sample report to the DEO office as we are yet to receive a report from department concerned.”

However, DEO, elementary, Gurjot Singh said, “A report has been sent to the headoffice as per directions.” When asked that why the schools were not installing reverse osmosis (RO) system, he said, “The schools do not get funds to install RO.

Water samples of 20 govt schools fail purity test
24 Jan 2015
Hindustan Times


I HAVE DIRECTED THE SCHOOL HEADS TO INSTALL REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEMS. WE WANT THAT STUDENTS GET PURE DRINKING WATER AND THIS IS THE ONLY SOLUTION. PARAMJIT KAUR CHAHAL, district education officer, secondary

LUDHIANA: District education officer (DEO), secondary, Paramjit Kaur Chahal directed the school principals to get reverse osmosis (RO) systems installed after water samples of 20 government schools failed purity test on Friday.

HT FILE PHOTO School heads asked to contact NGOs to contribute for RO machines.

There are 520 middle, high and senior secondary schools in the district.

The middle schools where samples failed are located in Rathwal, Jandali, Ghmnenel, Faijgarh, Aloona Tola and Paheed. The high schools are in Malewal, Sherpur Bet, Pawa, Birmi, Chandan Devi, Kounke Kalan and Jand, while the senior secondary schools are in Samrala (boys), Rampur, Kounke Kalan, Savedi Kalan (boys), Savedi Kalan (girls), Kila Hans and Leela Megh Singh.

Last month, C Roul, principal secretary, school education, had directed all the district education officers of Punjab to send reports of water samples.

Talking to Hindustan Times, Chahal said, “As many as 20 government schools have failed purity test so I have directed the school heads to install ROs. We want students get pure drinking water and this is the only solution. The school heads have been asked to get in touch with non-government organisations (NGOs) initially and those interested may contribute to serve the purpose.”

If school heads face any problem in this process, the DEO would write to the head office to seek permission to use the school funds.

Chahal said there were some schools which hadn’t submitted the information to her. “We have written to them again to provide us the reports of the water samples till January 27,” she said.

A government school principal, requesting anonymity, said, “We have received directions from the DEO, secondary, to install ROs but since we have no funds, six teachers of our school and have decided to make contribution.”

It is worth mentioning here that the district education officer, elementary, had on January 16 written to the Director General School Education (DGSE) office that 824 government primary schools in the district failed to supply safe drinking water to the children. There are 1,559 primary schools in the district.
