In addition, the Authority is developing water supply infrastructure in all the brackish areas of Punjab in 7 districts where 177 water supply boreholes (sources) have already been completed. Together with these 177 projects and additional 525 filtration plants next year, the Authority targets to provide improved access of good quality drinking water to about 15 million least privileged people, which will result in improved health and productivity of people and significantly reduce their medical expenses on water-borne diseases.”

Access to safe drinking water is the right of each and every citizen of our beloved country. Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority strives to ensure we can accomplish this goal with both efficiency and quality.
Upon the launch of about 14 projects of over Rs. 4 billion by end-June 2020 – in less than one year after the approval of first PC-1 – the Authority is already setting out a record achievement. With the completion of these projects within 6-8 months, the Authority is simultaneously launching several more projects to combat province-wide waterborne diseases. We aim to maintain our principle beliefs of dignity, honesty, and equality as we push ourselves to do the most in providing fundamental needs to all citizens. We have strong faith that nothing is impossible to accomplish as long as we believe in our capability, work hard with discipline, and consistently seek Allah’s guidance. When working together, we the passionate Pakistanis can support each other to set a global example of humanity and prosperity, In Sha Allah.

An effective awareness campaign regarding the provision and sustainability of clean drinking water would be ensured through the effective participation of the community.
