'CBC's total water requirement
is 13 million gallons of water per day.
Development Division (CAAD) Tariq Fazl Chaudhary Monday informed the National Assembly that a plan was afoot to supply water from Ghazi Barotha to Islamabad to meet water requirement
of the federal capital for next 25 years.
This plant will serve the potable water requirement
of nearby villages like Naraulli, Barawa, Hatipalpur, Gangapur, Sansara and others in the vicinity.
According to different studies, the total domestic water requirement
of Tharparkar is 0.25 per cent of the total rainfall that the district received.
Although shortage of irrigation water in lower Sindh continues but areas around Nawabshah are meeting the water requirement
though tube wells.
Responding to questions regarding availability of sweet water in Gwadar, Dr Baloch said that the current water requirement
for Gwadar stood at six million gallons per day and currently there was no direct water supply taking place to the area.
The CM calculated the water requirement
of Karachi in the meeting.
Responding to questions regarding water challenges in Gwadar, Jamaldini said that the current water requirement
for Gwadar stood at six million gallons per day but two water small dams were currently providing around 2.7 million gallons per day.
Meanwhile, a senior official of Punjab Small Dam Organization (SDO) told Dawn that the dam was necessary to provide additional water to the Rawalpindi city as water requirement
had increased with growth in the population.
The water requirement
is 60 million gallon per day.
A simple calculation can prove the chief justice's point of water availability: water requirement
per person per day in Karachi is 25 gallons (it is not 50 gallons as claimed by the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB).
