The Indus River System Authority ( IRSA ) has alert that water deficiency in the nation could increase by 30 to 35 percent as national water supplies have decreased by more than half in the last week.
The authority information shows that the national river flows on Monday dropped from 456,000 cusecs to 223,000 cusecs last week. The greatest plunge, from 225,000 cusecs to 97,800 cusecs, was seen in the River Indus.
IRSA spokesperson Khalid Idrees Rana, said that the river system authority has started drawing additional water supplies from Tarbela and Mangla dams, compromising their filling prospects. He said that the IRSA has not yet passed on the shortage to provinces. However, if the situation does not improve in the next week or so, the entire country will feel the pinch.
Khaid added, IRSA has been supplying 273,100 cusecs nationally, including 107,000 cusecs to Punjab, 149,000 to Sindh, 14,000 to Balochistan, and 3,100 to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa without slicing the provincial share.
