ISLAMABAD: Rainfall in July has solved the acute shortage of water in the country. Presently, there is sufficient water in dams for the provinces, informed the Indus River System Authority (IRSA) on Monday.
A meeting chaired by Pakistan Muslim League-Functional Senator Syed Muzaffar Hussain Shah was held at the committee room of the Parliament House.
While briefing the Senate Standing Committee on National Food Security, Sindh’s IRSA member Mazhar Ali Shah informed that due to climatic changes, less water in the rivers was recorded till June 15. Currently, there is sufficient water for the provinces as the rainfall in July helped the water levels to improve as water started reaching the tail end of the river.
He further informed that as per the current situation, Tarbela Dam is almost full. A little less water was recorded in Mangala Dam, which will be resolved if it gets more rain.
