Dec 4, 2021

ISLAMABAD: Ministry of Planning, Development and Special Initiatives will accelerate the processing of the revised PC-1 “K-IV Greater Karachi Water Supply Project” for approval as early as possible from CDWP and Ecnec. Federal Minister for Planning and Development and Special Initiatives Asad Umer convened a meeting to review the progress of the K-IV Great Karachi Water Supply Project, here in Islamabad on Friday. Additional Development Secretary Abdul Aziz Uqaili, Project Director Amir Mugal, and project consultant, Dr Bashir Lakhani, and senior officials attended the meeting. Minister of Planning Asad Umar directed the Planning Division to accelerate the processing of this revised PC-1 for approval as early as possible from the CDWP and ECNEC. The Project Director briefed the minister on the revised PC-1 of the K-IV project, project components, and design details. It was informed at the meeting that the Wapda had completed the design revision of the 650 MGD K-IV which would be implemented in stages. Project work will start in 3-4 months, will be completed in October 2023. All planning, design, and procurement activities are in accordance with the project timeline, and the construction of this project will be completed in October 2023. He also suggested ensuring an uninterrupted supply of electricity to operate the pumping station and to supply water to the proposed reservoir. The project director informed the chairman that the design of the K-IV project had been developed with a modular approach, whereby, five pumping stations with five large 84-inch diameter mild steel pipes carrying 130 MGD each with a total capacity of 650 MGD were planned to be implemented. The chairman informed that the Wapda had submitted PC-1 with a modified design of the 650 MGD K-IV project with various project implementation options that could be carried out in stages. The Minister expressed satisfaction with the pace of progress and work on developing the revised planning and design of this project, which is in line with the prime minister’s commitment to ensure water availability for the residents of Karachi in the shortest possible time. Head of Wapda Lieutenant General Muzammil Hussain (ret) visited the project site at the end of last month (November), where he said the project had progressed rapidly recently under the Prime Minister’s Karachi Package. Various causes delayed its completion and increased the estimated cost to Rs150 billion. The federal government eventually took over the project from the provincial government.
