    The water must be checked for E COLI a dangerous fungus and bacteria in coastal regions of Pakistan , sample should be cross examined from Agha Khan laboratories and not left on ground water system or bore , The water recycling needs deliberation by some foreign company . The water reservoirs should be a wells or through flow of natural system ie from reverse OSMOSIS or desalination and the sewerage should be treated for use on grass , lawns.
