STAFF REPORT ISB: A project to clean Rawal Lake and Simly Dam faces possible delay as the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Administration has failed to submit a PC-1 of the project to the Finance Ministry.
Pakistan Environmental Protection Agency (Pak-EPA) and civic authorities of the twin cities had agreed in October last to install four water treatment plants at Rawal Lake in the first phase. The ICT was to prepare and submit a PC-1 to the ministry but the plan has not been prepared yet. The project, it is feared, might not be a part of the 2015-16 budget due to the delay.
The plan agreed by ICT, Pak-EPA, CDA, and WASA Rawalpindi was estimated to cost Rs2.2 billion.
