Source of water for Hyderabad has been the mighty River Indus and canals taking off from the river viz. Lined Channel, Pinyari and Phulelli Canals. Quality-wise this water turbid and contaminated which cannot be used directly without filtration. Water therefore is collected in lagoons/setting tanks and then supplied.

 

Taking Hyderabad city Population as 1.8 million for 2015, the water demand at 30 gallons per capita per day (gcd) is estimated as 53.3 million gallons per day (MGD) in the household sector. In the industrial sector, the demand may be taken as 10% of H/H demand. Thus the estimated total demand would be about 59 MGD.

 

In the past, insufficient supply and unsafe drinking water were a chronic problem in Hyderabad. People not only faced the hardship of water shortage but also suffered from dangerous water-borne diseases caused by contamination of drinking water due to faulty lines and raw water supply. District Government has done a milestone regarding supply of clean water to people of Hyderabad by 111 major schemes of PKR 3197.5 million.

 

New lines have been laid, two water filter plants of 10 (M) gallon per day capacity (Pareabad and Halanaka) have been constructed which will facilitate a population of 0.6 (M) people to drink clean water for the first time. The existing two old filter plants at Jamshoro road have been refurbished with considerable expansion.

 

Now total population of Hyderabad is supplied with drinking water fit for human use. Additionally, arrangements for the need up till the year 2025 are also being made by constructing the third new filter plant of 20 MGD capacity. In addition, 06 new lagoons have been constructed / expanded, 89 new water supply lines and 05 bulk water supply lines have been laid with good number of interconnections.
