The PAPA, as part of its strategic and operational planning, has developed a comprehensive ‘business plan’ to set-forth the desired strategic, structural, operational and financial modalities for operationalization clean drinking water supply schemes in the targeted rural areas of the province. An effective awareness campaign regarding the provision and sustainability of clean drinking water would be ensured through the effective participation of the community. Instead of using approach of installing only UF/ RO filtration plants, the Authority is using processes including conventional media filtration, chlorination, surface water treatment through coagulation, flocculatiom and filtration, manually operated ultrafiltration pumps etc for sustainability and simplicity of operations based on raw water quality and other factors.An effective monitoring system would be put in place for the benefit of millions of the people of the province.
