In a landmark decision, the Punjab Small Dams Organization (PSDO) has given the green light for the construction of six mini dams in Rawalpindi Division, coupled with a significant allocation of funds amounting to PKR 15 million. This pivotal move initiates the topographic survey essential for determining optimal dam sites and signifies a promising step towards addressing water scarcity challenges in the region.

Survey and Construction Initiation

The allocated funds are earmarked for the commencement of the topographic survey, a crucial prelude to the actual construction phase. This survey is expected to be completed within the next two months, paving the way for the commencement of construction work on the dams. Anticipated to kick off around May or June 2024, the construction phase is a tangible step towards realizing the envisioned impact of these mini dams.
