Construction of Surface Water Treatment Plant at Jhang Branch Canal Faisalabad

Project Introduction

Faisalabad is an industrial city and its ground water is brackish. Total water demand of the area is 160 MGD and supply is 110 MGD so there is a shortfall of 50 million gallons per day. Due to the depletion of ground water in sweet zones and over pumping of present ground water in Chiniot and Jhang area, the aquifer is under stress resulting in declining of water table. Under this project, new site will be selected for installation of surface water treatment plants of 25 MGD capacity near Jhang branch Canal, Faisalabad.
