KARACHI: A team of experts will take off from Islamabad to Gilgit to asses the possibility of widening the Attabad spillway.
According to Chairman NDMA General (retired) Nadeem, the team will review the task to broaden spillway. The outflow from the lake has now reached to 8,900 cusecs.
General Nadeem said that three big stones were hampering the flow of the lake. If the stones were removed, the river stream could reach 15,000 to 20,000 cusecs, which would cause a gradual fall in the water level.
He also stated that dynamite would be used to remove the stones and all the precautionary measures had been taken in this regard.
Once the stones were removed, experts would review the situation and decide if it would be plausible to send the IDPs back home. Resuming boat services was also something under consideration. – DawnNews
