Flood, rain water to be used for recharging ground water: Amin Aslam

ISLAMABAD, Sep 26 (APP):Adviser to Prime Minister on Climate Change, Malik Amin Aslam Thursday said flood and rain water would be used to recharge depleting ground water under Recharge Pakistan project.

He made these remarks while chairing a meeting on Recharge Pakistan and ground water depletion in the Ministry of Climate Change, a press release said.

He said the ground water depletion was due to the wrong policies of the previous governments.

‘Recharge Pakistan’ was one of the five components of the government’s Clean Green Pakistan movement. However, with the help of partners, flood water and rain water would be used to recharge underground aquifers, he added.
