Surface Water Treatment Plant Lahore

Project Introduction

Water supply system of Lahore is based on the ground water and no alternative source like surface water is in use. Water is extracted from more than five hundred deep tube wells. Since last two decades excessive pumping of ground water in Lahore has resulted in lowering of water table at an alarming rate of one meter per annum on an average. The water quality is also deteriorating due to intrusion of polluted water due to discharge of un-treated waste water into the River Ravi. Water and Sanitation Agency (WASA) Lahore is planning to shift from ground water to surface water regime to cater the increasing need of Lahore. As a first step, 50 MGD capacity surface water treatment plant, with ultimate capacity of 250 MGD will be constructed.
