An official from the CDA stated that instructions have been issued to relevant departments to accelerate repair and maintenance work, focusing on addressing issues such as leakages and replacing aging pipes at the Simly Water Filtration Plant and Main Distribution Line. These proactive measures have not only resulted in saving eight lakh gallons of water per day but have also led to an improvement in water pressure within the pipelines.

Moreover, efforts are being made to address complaints regarding leakages from old and deteriorated pipes in water supply lines across different sectors of Islamabad, ultimately enhancing water availability for residents.

Highlighting the impact of insufficient rainfall on water levels in dams like Khanpur Dam, the official emphasized the relentless efforts of the Water Supply Department to bridge the water shortage gap before the onset of summer. The goal is to ensure adequate water supply to citizens despite the declining reserves in Khanpur Dam.

To expedite these measures, the tender has already been published in various newspapers, reflecting the authority’s commitment to proactively manage water resources and ensure the well-being of Islamabad’s residents as summer approaches.
