CDA Shifts 25 Tube Wells to Automated System

CDA Shifts 25 Tube Wells to Automated System

Islamabad:  The Capital Development Authority (CDA) is on its way to automating the tube wells to ensure an uninterrupted supply of water to the residents of the metropolitan city. The Chairman CDA, Aamer Ali Ahmed inaugurated The automated system at Poona Faqiran Treatment Plant that will provide a continuous water supply to the inhabitants of Sector I -9 and I -10. The 25 tube wells connected to the Poona Faqiran treatment plant will be operated from a single control room. Initially, the residents of the two sectors will benefit from the experimental exercise but later this facility will be spread to the other sectors of the city.

The tube wells have also been shifted to solar systems that will initially lower the operational cost by Rs 30 million per annum along with a significant improvement in the water supply to the residents of the area. According to the press release issued by the CDA Authorities, the automation of the Treatment plant is done on an experimental basis. “The Poona Faqiran water treatment plant has been automated on an experimental basis. The modern system installed at Faqiran Water Treatment Plant will control 25 tube wells through an automated system, which will ensure uninterrupted water supply in sectors I-9 and I-10,” said the press release. The officials f the civic agency told that later this exercise will be implemented in the other plants of the city.

It has also been learned that currently there are as many as 176 tube wells working in the city and some more of them are also being installed. All of the tube wells will be shifted to an automation system with the passage of time and they will be controlled through a mobile app. It is also important to note that currently there are three different sources of water supply working simultaneously in the federal capital namely tube wells, Khanpur Dam, and Simly Dam.

Since the city is expanding rapidly, many more development projects like Kharian Rawalpindi Motorway Transaction Structure and DDP Mega Projects in KPK are also needed to be initiated in the Capital city. Over the years a lot many new housing societies have emerged in the capital city so the demand for water has risen to a great extent in the recent past. However, it is relevant to note that no serious attempts have been made in the last two decades to cater to the ever-increasing demand for water supply to the city. Now CDA is taking the issue seriously and two more small dama namely Shadhra and Chiniot and a mega water supply scheme namely the Ghazi Brotha Project worth Rs 100 billion are also under the plan of the government which is expected to provide around 100 MGD each to the twin cities.
