ISLAMABAD �(October 25, 2010) :�Environmental pollution has increased to alarming level in the federal capital as there has been mushroom growth of informal dump sites in the city for several years.

In a survey conducted by this agency citizens said that cutting off trees, improper garbage disposal, bad sewerage system, constructions of roads are the main factors, causing environmental pollution.

The residents opined that there was no proper system of solid waste treatment and uncovered drains run through the city, emitting bad odour and also overflow during rains.
