The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has approved installation of generators to ensure smooth supply of water from tubewells in I-8 sector.

CDA chairman Syed Tahir Shahbaz accorded this approval taking notice of persisting water shortfall in the sector.

Member Engineering Sanaullah Amman proposed that generators be installed at tubewells to avoid suspension of water supply in the wake of protracted load shedding hours. 

Decision has also been taken to supply water from Simli dam to sector I-10 to overcome water shortage therein as load shedding factor is also affecting water supply adversely in this sector.
