Asian Development bank granted $110m to complete four projects under the Punjab Intermediate Improvement Cities Project
Rawalpindi: The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved the grant of $110m to complete 4 projects under the Punjab Intermediate Improvement Cities Project (PIICP). The grant is sanctioned to resolve the water-supply issue in the six populous union councils of Rawalpindi.
ADB and the Punjab government approved the grant under Phase II. In Phase I, ADB approved grants for similar projects in Sialkot and Sahiwal. The projects in Phase II are meant to supply additional 52 million gallons of water per day.
The Chahan Dam Water Supply project supplying 6 million gallons of water will be upgraded to provide 12 million gallons of water every day. The project will supply water to six union councils including Chak Jalal Din, Dhamiyal, Lakhan, Mohri Ghazan, Garja 1, and Garja 2.
Under the 2nd project, a new water line from Rawal Dam Treatment Plan to Rawalpindi will be laid. This will increase the water supply to garrison city from 6 million gallons to 28 million gallons. This project will also contribute to saving energy since the Water and Sanitation Agency (WASA) will not have to operate its 80-90 tube wells.
Under the 3rd project, a water loop will be created for an undisrupted water supply to all sectors of Khayaban-e-Sir Syed.
The 4th project will contribute to conducting a research study on the Dadocha Dam and the distribution of 35 million gallons of water upon completion.
These projects are anticipated to upgrade the water supply system in Rawalpindi and six of its densely populated union councils.
