CDA to Cut Water Supply to Rawalpindi and Islamabad

On Friday, the collapse of the left bank canal of Khanpur Dam forced the CDA to cut water supply to Rawalpindi and Islamabad. The main waterway, 19.6 km long, was damaged by a recent landslide. The dam is a drinking water source for the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. Today, 14.5 million gallons of water (MGD) are supplied to the CDA and 8 and 9 MGDs to the Wasa and Rawalpindi Cantonment Board (RCB), respectively.

A senior official at RCB told us

The team was trying to repair the canal in the shortest possible time. He said that the repair work will be completed in about 10 days. Residents of the metropolitan area who depend on the water supply of the Kanpur Dam will face a shortage. The chief executive of Seaton Raja Cantonment, who was contacted, said last month that the channel was damaged by rainfall. The damaged canal will be repaired and the work will be completed in about five days, official officials say. He said the water share in the cantonment area was reduced from nine to four MGDs.

But repair work has begun and will be completed to restore supply in the next 10 days, he added. He said RCB provided machinery and staff for repair work and planned to address the water shortages in the area. He said there was enough water at the Boxney filtration plant, but residents should use water carefully until September 3. We are committed to providing a constant supply of water to our residents. In the affected areas, the water supply of tuberculosis will continue.

On the other hand, the Water and Sanitation Agency (Wasa) has planned to supply water to nine areas that are supplied by the Kanpur Dam. Areas affected are Dhoke Hassu, Dhoke Matkal, Ratta Amral, Pirwadhai, Pindora, Double Road, Shamsabad, Mullpur and Sadiqabad. Wasa spokesman Umer Farooq said he will do his best to provide water to its residents through other means.

He said that this agency would release water from Rawal Dam to fat. A Chaklala Cantonment Board (CCB) official said the water supply to the region was reduced to 1 MGD. They said that groundwater was not available in many areas, and that after the dam's water supply was reduced, residents had to arrange private tankers.

Karachi heavy rains on August 11 & 12

The ugly appearance that Karachi had after heavy rains on August 11 and 12 did not frankly surprise the Karachi people. That's right. The difficulty of the (citizen's) vehicle moving across electrocuted deaths and flooded roads was extremely unpleasant. But they have long faced this terrible situation. There is no novel about it. That's right. A few weeks ago, a similar situation forced the media to focus on the injustices of Sind and city government.

Perhaps both show that they can't handle the problem of maintaining massively expanding city selection and spans. Now we will leave this discussion to experts. There is a more important issue here. Karachi has many charitable activists and well-meaning people who do charitable activities on a regular basis, especially at religious events. To help you understand the argument, let's call it the 'private sector'.

They play a big role in making the underprivileged and lush feeling of the city important. Where does the sector disappear when a greater percentage of crises, such as the chaos caused by monsoons, hit the beloved city? One should not be harsh on them, so let's say that it is difficult for the sector because it gives them the benefit of doubt and does not work in an organized way. This is what they can think of. The most surprising is related to some organizational groups that have emerged over the last decade. 

They are influential, stiff and want to restore Karachi's historical past. Certainly, what they are doing or trying to do is intended and has no profit. After all, it takes time and courage to revive the city's glory, where the 'documented' history does not date back to 200 years (Charles Napier became the tranquility of Britain and the world in Karachi after conquering the Sindh in the early 1840s).

Karachi's colonial buildings

Those who want to restore Karachi's colonial buildings are urgently needed to renovate old neighborhoods concentrated in the South District and walk along the Saddar area to preserve architecture that is familiar to people, especially foreigners. You can not emphasize the fact. Will the city's indigenous population come in difficult times down to modern times to alleviate the misery of the Karachi people? There is more glory in helping people improve the present than rebuilding the past.

This influential group is interested in the media and does not perform because it is associated with a wide range of key professions (architecture, business, medicine, academia and engineering) that can help city managers be viable and solve problems. Many times. Practical solution to the problem faced by the capital of Sind.

Relieving people's misery is not an easy task, as it means working not only in the reorganization of the southern region, but also in a wide range of areas such as Landhi, North Karachi, Ancholi, Sohrab Goth, Sakhi Hasan, Banaras, Pehalwan Goth, Mehmoodabad. , Ahsanabad, etc., were flooded when the rain fell at a ferocious pace on August 12.

Residents in this area rarely expect the government to rescue them. The government of our country did not keep the promise or turned out to be competent. (You shouldn't try to put your socks on either). Karachi people always come from comfortable places to help others.
