Construction of these projects has yielded results in the shape of controlling soil erosion and inundation of fertile agriculture land by floods. Land is now being irrigated from these dams. Local people are cultivating different crops in these areas in addition to wildlife and other activities. Moreover, clean drinking water has been provided to the locals through these completed projects. As a result, water born diseases in the area have been minimized. FATA DA has also initiated a number of multipurpose small irrigation schemes.  Some of these sites are for drinking water from which huge population will be benefited. Irrigation components of these schemes have already brought a huge land under cultivation. Some sites identified by the FATA DA for the first time, show that electricity can also be generated.  Another important multipurpose dam is “Jabba” in Khyber district. After completion of feasibility study and land acquisition and detail design, PC-I is submitted to competent forum for approval. This dam will provide clean drinking water to Jamrud area of Khyber district and a great population of District Peshawar. Another important feature of this dam is that the risk of floods in downward areas at Peshawar will be mitigated.
