Small Dams / Power

Print

This important sector receives almost 50% funds of the FATA DA ADP each year. With this increased allocation, FATA DA has been able to complete a number of important dams and other projects.  Moreover, feasibility studies of various projects including power generation were also completed.

So far, FATA DA has completed the following projects:

  1. Dargai Pal Small Dam, SWA
  2. Dandy Small Dam, NWA
  3. Moto Shah Small Dam, Mohmand Agency
  4. Sheen Kach Small Dam, FR Tank
  5. Zao Small Dam, Khyber Agency
  6. Kand Small Dam, NWA
  7. Ping Small Dam, FR Bannu
  8. Sheen Warsak Irrigation Scheme, SWA
  9. Musa Nikka Irrigation Scheme, SWA
  10. Zeera Letta Irrigation Scheme, SWA
  11. Sadda Weir  Lower Kurram, Agency
  12. Walai Killi Bazar Zakha Khel Irrigation Scheme, Khyber Agency
  13. Pir Qayum Drinking Water, Kurram Agency
  14. Makha Zai Irrigation Scheme, Kurram Agency
  15. Zarwam Irrigation Scheme, FR Bannu

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 about 47000 persons will be benefitted. Irrigation components of these schemes have already brought about 91000 acres 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 Agency. After completion of feasibility study and land acquisition, detail design has been initiated. This dam will provide clean drinking water to Jamrud area of Khyber Agency 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.
