Abstract

This article looks at the discourse about water quality in Gilgit city and how clean water provision and consumption are influenced by and reinforce the fragmented water supply system in Gilgit. Both the discourse about clean water quality and the installation of water filtration plants in Gilgit revolve around local ideas of modernity based on Western-style notions of progress, as well as on global developmental and modernization concepts.
