The water level in the dam has increased because of the ongoing spell of heavy rainfall in Karachi and Sindh.
Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) official Sohail Siddiqui stated, the dam last completely filled in 2007.
The water level in Hub Dam, which supplies drinking water to Karachi and meets the water needs of a few places in Balochistan crossed the 338-foot mark on Thursday and is required to completely fill its maximum capacity for a long time in 13 years.
After crossing the 339 ft. level whenever today, overflow water will begin spilling out from the spillways of the Hub Dam into the ocean close to Mubarak Village.
WAPDA stated, the heavy rains caused the water level in Hub Dam to increase by more than eight feet during the previous three days. During the most recent 24 hours alone, it is increased by more than two feet and since the time the storm rainfall this year started, has caused the water level to increase by a shocking 30 feet.
Hub Dam’s administration body and water system authorities have begun showing up at the dam to manage the crisis circumstance following the water spillage from it.
