KWSB MD Khalid Shaikh is worried about Dhabeji pipelines crossing flooded Malir River.
He said, “Karachi’s water supply comes from Dhabeji pumping station. The pipelines cross Malir River which is flooded.”
This is more worrisome that after the heavy rainfalls recently, the Malir River has flooded over the infrastructure about seven times and that is what worries the water board staff.
There are a few areas we need to do extra work: Nagan Chowrangi, Shafiq Morr by Gujjar Nullah, Yousaf Goth, he said. If once the rain stopped they would be able to drain the water in a few hours.
