Hazara Irrigation Department KPK
The irrigation network of Pakistan is one of the largest contiguous irrigated system in the world. The snow-clad peaks of the mountain ranges in the North continuously recharge the system. The descending snow melt and monsoon waters flow into the country’s Indus River system and its tributaries. Passing through the plateau and the great plains across the Indus valley, the rivers join up to form the Indus that eventually drains into the Arabian Sea in the South. Irrigated agriculture is the back bone of the country’s economy, and consumes around 95 percent of the nation’s water resources, the balance is used for domestic and industrial requirements.
