CDA Plans to Make Construction of Recharge Wells Mandatory for House Owners

Islamabad: According to reports stated on March 17, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) intends to mandate that homeowners in Islamabad build recharge wells to collect rainwater. The choice has been made to stop the groundwater supplies from being depleted. According to reports, the water table in the capital city continues to decline by at least four feet annually. According to Sardar Khan Zimri, the deputy director general for water management, a proposal to mandate the construction of recharge wells at the home level for longer-lasting and better outcomes as this will help recharge groundwater aquifers has been presented to the CDA's building control section. Mr. Zimri stated that the committee established to change current by-laws had received his suggestion.

According to a CDA official, in their respective regions, some 70 subterranean wells have been recharging the water table of the capital city.
