Islamabad: The F-9 Citizen Club facility will be used as a convention and culture centre, according to city administrators who accepted a proposal for the construction of two small dams in Islamabad on Friday.
The tiny dams would be built in Chiniot and Shahdhara, according to the Capital Development Authority (CDA) board, which convened with its chairman Amer Ali Ahmed in the chair. It was also determined that these dams would be funded by the federal government through the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP).
According to a board member, Chiniot, which is located on the upper side of Simly Dam, is under the Punjab government’s control. It was determined that the authority would approach the government for approval to build the dam.
According to him, Chiniot Dam will act as a feeder for Simly Dam, with the CDA storing roughly 20 million gallons per day (MGD) of water in it for release to Simly Dam in the event of an emergency.
He said that a feasibility assessment for this dam was undertaken in the 1980s, but that no work was done after that. During the monsoon, the CDA is forced to squander water from the Simly and Rawal dams by opening spillways. The CDA board also approved to build the Ghandhara Heritage and Culture/Convention Centre in F-9.
