Islamabad: Sindh Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Farrukh Habib on Thursday said the Greater Karachi Water Supply scheme (K-IV) will be completed by the end of 2023, news sources reported. He was addressing the contract signing ceremony for the hiring of consultancy firms for the K-IV project.
The project, he added, is critical to meeting the city’s water demands, which are now short of 650 million gallons of water on a regular basis. The project is part of the prime minister’s Karachi transformation plan, and it will be built and managed by the Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA). Various financing agencies have expressed their interest in the project.
Furthermore, he stated that new dams are being constructed to meet the country’s power demands and that these dams would provide 10,000 Megawatts of electricity. So far, 45% of electricity needs have been supplied using fuel, which pollutes the atmosphere and the environment, he added.
