It’s worth noting that Islamabad’s capital city requires 220 million gallons per day (MGD), of which CDA provides 65 MGD. Simly Dam, Khanpur Dam, and 176 tube wells are the only three sources of water available to meet the city’s demands. Other water supply projects being worked on by the government include two small dams, Shahdhara and Chiniot, as well as the Ghazi Barotha Project, which will give an extra 100 MGD to Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
