At present, people of Turbat are experiencing shortage of water. Residents believe that after construction of dams this problem can also be solved to a greater extent.
“Due to electricity load shedding farmers can’t extract water using tube wells. Proposed dams in Turbat would also be beneficial for the farmers of the district Kech,” a famer old The Balochistan Point.
People of Turbat have urged government of Balochistan to start construction of dams in the district on war footings.
