Under-estimating the worth of water and considering it as a throw-away product is ethically, socially, and spiritually unacceptable.

پانی کو اِس کی اہمیت سے کم اہمیت دینا ۔ اُور استمال کے بعد بےجان اُور ناکارہ چیز سمجھ کر پھینکنا اخلاقی،سماجی اُور روحانی طور پر نامناسب ہے۔

Contamination of Nearby Water Resources

Traditionally female family members fetch water for drinking from clean water sources. When the pure water availability nearby homes became difficult, women could not bring for their families.

آبادی زیادہ ہونے کی وجہ سے اُور استعمال شدہ پانی کو ٹریٹ نہ کرنے کی وجہ سے صاف پانی نزدیکی جگہوں سے ملنا مشکل ہوتا جا رہا ہے۔اِس لیے پانی لانے والا کام جو عام طور پر خواتین انجام دیتی تھیں اُن کیلئے مشکل ہوتا جارہا ہے۔


Changing Roles

From female to male family member


Overpopulated areas caused contamination of nearby underground and surface water resources. The male family members have to search for pure water for families and bring it according to need.

پانی لانے کی زمہ داری میں تبدیلی۔
عمومی طور پر یہ کام خواتین سرانجام دیتی تھیں۔ جس میں اب مردوں کا حصہ زیادہ ہوتا جارہا ہے۔

ملک کے بیشتر حصوں میں صاف پانی کی فراہمی کی ڈیوٹی مردوں کو معاشی زمہ داریوں کے ساتھ ساتھ نبھانی پٹر رہی ہے۔



The male-dominated societies could not perform their water care responsibilities...
Neglected human contaminated water comes back home through poorly managed water supply and sewerage pipeline systems...
It farced male family members to perform water fetching duty after bread-winning work.
It is happening in urban areas and converges to rural areas as well...

بظاہر یوں لگتا ہے کہ پاکستانی معاشرے میں مردوں کا تقربنا" ہر مسلئہ کی فیصلہ سازی میں کردار زیادہ اہم رہا ہے۔جوکہ عملی طور پر نبھایا نیہں جاسکا۔ اسی طرح پانی کے وسائل کو گھروں تک رسائی میں صاف اُور پینے کے قابل نہیں رکھا جاسکا ۔ اِس زمہ داری سے کوتاہی کی وجہ سے لگتا ہے کہ مردوں کو گھروں میں صاف پانی کی فراہمی کے سلسلہ زہادہ کام کرنا پٹرے گا۔

waterman.pk doesn't want Mother Nature "ANGRY"...

قدرت جس کو عمومی طور انسان ماں کا درجہ دیتے ہیں "واٹر مین" کی کوشش ہے
کہ انسان اُس کی عطا کردہ نعمتون کو ضائع کرکے اُس کو ناراض نہ کریں۔

Ignorance of water treatment after use

Life in urban centres is already time expensive, and the engagement for clean water search and fetching affect negatively. The same situation is arising for rural areas.

Life in urban centres is already time expensive, and the engagement for clean water search and fetching affect negatively. The same situation is arising for rural areas.

People who can’t afford to buy clean water depend on various sources, including public filtration plants. Generally, they remain under tension whether the quality is drinkable.

Nature shows concerns about the misuse of Her Life Resource Water

People don’t understand investing in clean water means healthy and economic productive life. It is vital to stand for pure water rights.

The labour or people having fewer resources got health issues by using contaminated water and cheap vegetables and salads produced with dirty water.

This negligence badly affects the efficiency of people contributing their physical services can not play their part to keep national socio-economic indicators healthy.

realization of the power and vulnerability of water


Valuing water is water conservation...

The quest for finding the root cause of diminishing clean/freshwater and inequalities to have clean water accessible for all was initiated by Mr. Yousaf Riaz in 1995. According to Mr. Yousaf Riaz, it was the evolution of the thought process to establish waterman.pk in 2018 after serving in various public and private sector organizations.
He traveled across the country and some other parts of the world and observed many reasons, but the main reason was to consider water as wastable/throwaway product. Generally, the worth of water is not rightly estimated; it is under-estimated. Water is used/contaminated, and without treatment it makes its way towards polluting the surface and ground clean water resources.
The developed world considerably checked their attitude towards using and naturally recycling water, but the developing countries are still struggling.

Family where life begins and love never ends...


Charity begins at home, but should not end there...

Yousaf felt blessed; he started the Bio-remediation Application process to reclaim used-water for re-use from home with the support of his family. The home gray water was bio-remediated for irrigation of the rooftop vegetable garden. At the same time, he carried out various experiments and discovery of local biological resources to treat humans' contaminated water for reuse in different research institutes. Finally, the combination of local aquatic plants, microbes, and biological civil engineering construction patterns was achieved to treat used water for reuse in 2006-07 under permissible limits. Later, his family and friends continued support, and empowered him to replicate the concept on small, medium and large scale for the greater interest of all being safe from water related and water born diseases.
A consensus was developed to consider "contaminated water" as an afflicted partner of the ecosystem and it should be treated sympathetically.

water is life and facilities life forms to exist...


waterman.pk's views about water...

Taking care of water resources’ health can ensure clean/potable water availability at homes.

.آبی وسائل کی صحت و صفائی ہی ہمارے گھروں میں پینے والے صاف پانی کی فراہمی کو یقینی بنا سکتی ہے

Be in Limits!

Mother Nature sets limits for humans to use fresh/clean water and treats used water naturally up to certain limits. The available water on the planet is not only for humans; there is a share for plants and animals.

ہم انسان، تحفہ خُداوَنْدی پانی کو ایک حد سے زیادہ نہ استعمال کرسکتے اُورنہ آلودہ ۔ کیونکہ خدا تعالی نے انسانوں کے علاوہ دو سری مخلوقات کو بھی زندہ رکھنے کیلئےفراہم کرنا ہوتا ہے۔

Fair Share!

It is humans’ responsibility to use their water share fairly and should not contaminate a significant amount of water; otherwise, it will be challenging to face the application of Natural Laws for the misuse of freshwater resources.

لہذا ہمیں اپنے حصے کے مطابق ہی قدرتی وسائل کا استمعال کرنا چاہیے، ورنہ قوانینِ قدرت حرکت میں آتے ہیں اور جن کا مقابلہ ہم انسانوں کی بس کی بات نہیں ھوتی۔

Voice for used water!

Generally, people demand clean drinking water from the local, provincial, and federal governments in their areas. The treatment of used water remained ignored and later it caused contamination of clean water. It is an important obligation to request the authorities to take action along with the provision of drinking water and the treatment of humans’ polluted waters.

ہم لوگ جسطرح پینے والے صاف پانی کیلئے مقامی، صوبائی، یا قومی حکومتوں سے مطالبہ کرتے ہیں اسی طرح اُن کو آگاہ کرنا چاہیے کہ ہم استعمال شدہ پانی کی ٹریٹمنٹ کو بھی انتہائی ضروری سمجھتے ہیں۔ ورنہ اِ س کوتا ہی کے نا قابلِ تلافی نقصانات ہوتے رہیں گے۔

Listen to Mother Nature!

Dealing with water security requires long-term solutions according to
Nature’s demonstrated ways to manage water resources.
Short-term solutions can lead to absolute water scarcity and economic crisis.

آبی وسائل کی آلودگی کو نظر اندازکرنا اُور عارضی طور پرصاف پانی کی تلاش اور لانے میں اُس وقت کو استعمال کرنا جوکہ تعلیمی، کاروباری، سماجی، اُور معاشی ترقی کیلئے ہونا چاہیے طویل مدتی ترقی کے اہداف کوحاصل کرنے میں تاخیر کا باعث بن سکتا ہے۔

"next to excellence is the appreciation of it."

The Responsibility Ignored

  • A true story of a man who could not ignore sick waters..
Keeping water contamination-free is the foremost step toward the conservation of water.
Waterman.pk team publishes quarterly soft and hard copies of the newsletter “Bio-remediation ways” for the associated water sensitive communities for information about the ongoing activities in various areas.
Waterman. pk and his team developed the information system to keep the concerned authorities and stakeholders updated about the water quantity and quality situations.
waterman.pk encourages water professionals and non-professionals to write and share their experiences, stepping towards keeping water resources healthy.

Mr. Yousaf Riaz dedicatedly served the national water resources to be pollution free and wrote the book with analytical review of Pakistan's journey from water prosperity to water poverty. According to him it is a review time to learn from mistakes and plan to manage water resources according to growing population's needs for clean drinking and irrigation water.
The book shares various case studies, how the nations poor in water resources become rich in water resources by using best practices according to their local conditions.
The book also reveals Mr. Yousaf Riaz's painstaking efforts to carry on his Journey Bio-remediation for rehabilitating sick waters for re-use.

Mr. Munsif Riaz, served sincerely the Bio-remediation process to reclaim used-water for reuse. We all went through very difficult situations to continue the Bio-remediation work under the insensitive attitude for the people to serve sick waters. Unfortunately, Brother Munsif could not survive a brain hemorrhage on February 26, 2020. It was a great loss to our family and the cause. We are grateful to God for his life to serve with us for the country’s contaminated waters recovery.
