Officials in Tajikistan are bracing for a public health crisis after flooding contaminated the water supply of the capital Dushanbe. The government's emergency response has been hampered by an underdeveloped public information system.

Heavy rain in recent days caused the flooding of the Varzob River, a chief source of drinking water for Dushanbe. As a result, "a thick liquid unfit not only for drinking but for practical needs as well," is now spewing out of faucets in many Dushanbe households, the Russian news agency Itar-Tass reported.

16 Jul 2004 description

Nearly two-thirds of Dushanbe has been without running water for two days after heavy rains and mudslides filled the Varzob River with sludge, Asia Plus-Blitz reported on 15 July. The river is the city's main source of potable water. Some 50 trucks with tanks of drinking water are servicing the city at present, and 40 percent of city residents have access to artesian water. Still, the efforts city officials have made to keep residents supplied with water are insufficient, ITAR-TASS reported.
