Rawalpindi: According to news reports, construction work on the Rs. 6.49 billion Daducha Dam has started after a temporary halt due to technical and administrative problems. The project is essential for the delivery of drinkable water in the Rawalpindi region.
On a daily basis, 35 million gallons of water will be provided to the city after the project is done. The dam construction began in early 2021 and was expected to take 30 weeks to complete. However, the completion date has been pushed back because to the difficulties. The Daducha Dam is 60,000 acres in size.
Dadocha hamlet, 24 kilometres from Rawalpindi, is where the dam is being built. Millions of gallons of water leak into the sea due to a shortage of water-storage dams, therefore the dam is considered as critical in addressing the country’s water security. The current project is part of a government initiative to construct tiny dams in order to address people’ water issues.
