The Water and Power Development Authority (Wapda) is making all-out efforts to initiate construction work on the Naulong, Hingol, Badinzai and Sukliji dams in the province, Wapda chairman retired Lt Gen Muzammil Hussain said at a meeting here on Thursday.
At the meeting held to review progress made on various projects, the Wapda chief was informed that the Naulong dam was ready for construction and that funding options for it were being discussed with the Asian Development Bank through the Economic Affairs Division.
