The RO plants, which were developed as a result of a collaboration between the RDA and the Saylani Welfare International Trust, were unveiled by Rawalpindi Commissioner Liaquat Ali Chatta. In the past, the two organizations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish RO plants around Rawalpindi. These RO plants were installed for about PKR 1.4 million, and the project took two months to complete.
The commissioner emphasized the need for prudent water use throughout the ceremony, viewing water as a gift from Allah. He complimented the Saylani Welfare Trust for its dedication to building new water filtration units and advised the public to refrain from wasting water.
In the next two to three months, additional water filtering facilities will be installed at various places, according to welfare trust representatives.
The establishment of the RO plants was emphasised by RDA Director General Saif Anwar Jappa as being for the welfare of the populace. These facilities will supply safe drinking water to nearby communities in addition to hundreds of government workers. He also emphasised how the RO plant project fits in with RDA’s continuing welfare activities and stated their ambition to keep developing projects of a similar nature.
Jappa also spoke of an arrangement between the Water and Sanitation Agency (WASA) and the Saylani Welfare International Trust to activate 15 of the agency’s tube wells in order to provide the public with a clean and readily available water supply.
