RESERVATIONS OF PROVINCES AND WAPDA’S REPLY

PUNJAB
• Punjab has no objection on construction of the dam.

BALOCHISTAN
• Balochistan has no objection but has demanded 12% of royalty on the generation of hydropower from Akhori on the basis of 12% share in water.
• GOB has been requested to approach Federal Government being competent to decide the matter.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Reservations WAPDA’s Response
Un-favorable geology. Geology is favorable, however more investigations will be carried out during detailed engineering design stage.
Excessive seepage which will ruin their agriculture fields.

Seepage Will be taken care of while designing the channel & the dam material to be used after carrying out all the Lab Test.

Location of the power house in Punjab due to which royalty will be claimed by Punjab whereas the people of KPK will be displaced and their lands will be affected. Adequate compensation will be paid to the displaced persons and their resettlement will be ensured. 
 Availability of water. Data shows that water is available for Akhori Dam.
Design of the dam is faulty as appearing in feasibility report. Detailed engineering design will be taken only after carrying out geological investigations & hydrological studies.

SINDH

Reservations WAPDA’s Response
Water availability.  Ample water is available for the dam according to data available.
Un-favourable geology at dam site. Geology permits the construction of dam.
Non-assessment of flows downstream Kotri in EIA Studies. Environmental Impact on downstream Kotri has been assessed.
Deterioration of ground water quality. Instead of deteriorating the quality of ground water; the construction of dam will improve the ground water quality in Sindh due to continuous releases from the dam.
Seismology of the project area is not favorable. Seismological studies show that dam is feasible at the proposed site.

 WAY FORWARD

MoW&P under its mandate may convene a meeting to discuss the observations of provinces on Feasibility Study of Akhori Dam Project.
