Rains raise water level in Simly, Khanpur dams


Capital Development Authority Water Management Director General Sanaullah Aman has said the recent monsoon rains have raised the water level in Simly and Khanpur dams. Sanaullah Aman said water level in Simly dam has risen by 13 feet and in Khanpur Dam by four feet. Owing to the rise in the level of water in the two dams, the CDA will increase water supply to Islamabad, he noted. Previously, CDA supplied 22 million gallons of water to Islamabad and now it will supply 24 million gallons to the federal capital, he added. Sanaullah Aman claimed water-crisis in Islamabad will be resolved completely as a result of more monsoon rains in near future.
