Installation of Pilot Treatment Plant Along RBOD System

  1. Project Background
 

Pakistan's economic potential is unlimited due to its strong agricultural base, human resource, its climate and geographic position but water might be one serious bottleneck to its growth. Therefore, we need a paradigm shift and should focus on water conservation and management approach to fulfill the needs of growing population.

Considering water scarcity in the Country, the Drainage Effluent of Right Bank Command Area of Sukkur and Guddu Barrages is about 750,000 acres ft. which should not be wasted or disposed of unutilized into the sea/ lake. It has to be used as such or after treatment for drinking, agriculture, fisheries or other economical uses.

In recognition of this need, WAPDA under the directions of the President of Pakistan carried out Feasibility Studies through Consultants during Year 2009 and 2010  for treatment and reuse of RBOD effluent.

In the feasibility study, the Consultants proposed installation of Treatment Plants along RBOD system so that the hazardous base flow of RBOD Effluent can be treated for its various uses. As first step, a Pilot Treatment Plant at RD + 93 of MNVD (RBOD) will be installed. Location map of the Pilot Project site attached vide (Figure-I).    

During a presentation on May 18, 2010 at Karachi, the President of Pakistan appreciated the initiatives introduced by WAPDA regarding water conservation strategy through reutilization plan for RBOD effluent and approved the plan for Installation of Pilot Treatment Plant Project. PC-1 of the Project prepared by WAPDA was approved by the ECNEC in its meeting held on 26.05.2011 at the rationalized cost of Rs 3353.373 Million subject to availability of foreign funding.

  • Provide 28958 Acre ft of water for irrigation of 10,984 acres of land.
  • Availability of 20 lac gallons per day of potable water for about 05 lac of local populace residing in Dadu, Johi Towns and adjoining villages of Project area.
  • Extraction of salts as byproduct which covers about 50-60% of the O&M cost.
  • Conservation of Ecology of Manchar Lake by treating hazardous effluent of RBOD.
  • Socio-economic uplift and poverty reduction.

4.         Updated Progress

 

 

Ø  The Consultants have completed the Evaluation Report of 1st Stage Bids for EPC Contract for Installation of Pilot Treatment Plant submitted by pre-qualified Bidders which is under process for approval by competent authority. However, further tendering process has been withheld due to non-availability of requisite funds and observations of Ministry of Planning, Development & Reforms (MPD&R), Islamabad in May 2014 regarding implementation of the Project by WAPDA in the post 18th Constitutional Amendment scenario.

  • WAPDA’s view point on the observations of Ministry of Planning, Development and Reforms and clear stance of GOS regarding implementation of the Project by WAPDA stands furnished to Ministry of Planning, Development and Reforms, Islamabad through Ministry of Water & Power, Islamabad. However, the matter is yet to be resolved since the consultative meeting scheduled on 03.07.2015 in Ministry of Planning, Development and Reforms, Islamabad has been postponed besides only Rs 01 Million has been allocated for the Project under PSDP 2015-16 against WAPDA’s demand of Rs 2200 Million.
  • The Consultants have also submitted the Draft Tender Documents for Infrastructure Development Component works (Access Road, Irrigation, Water Supply & Electricity Networks etc.). However, the tendering process has not been initiated due to
    non-availability of requisite funds for the main EPC Contract.
  • The construction of camp colony and offices for the Pilot Project has been completed. The land acquisition process for the land required for Pilot Treatment Plant has been initiated and Gazette Notification under Section-4, 6 and 17 of Land Acquisition Act issued.

Ø  The treatment and re-use of RBOD effluent by installing Treatment Plants along RBOD is one of proposed solutions submitted to Honourable Supreme Court of Pakistan in Suo Moto Case No.10 of 2010 to address issue of contamination of water of Manchar Lake. However, during hearing of Suo Moto Case on 18-08-2015 the Honourable Court directed Secretary Planning, Development & Reforms Islamabad to submit revise Plan immediately to address the issue. Accordingly, the Secretary Ministry of Planning Development & Reforms Islamabad submitted a revised plan. Subsequently, the Honourable Court in their Order dated 17-09-2015 mentioned that “insofar as installation of the treatment plant on the RBOD is concerned, we have been informed that this project has been abandoned due to a massive funding issue.”

Ø  WAPDA has requested to Ministry of Water & Power, Islamabad for obtaining advice from Ministry of Planning, Development & Reforms, Islamabad regarding future course of action to be adopted in the matter.
