Islamabad: The city management and Capital Development Authority (CDA) have chosen the two areas for the dump site, and the recommendations for both sites would be examined at the upcoming CDA board meeting.
The sanitation directorate was ordered to alert Urban Unit Team, its consultant, about the two sites, sources claim.
According to the sources, the directorate would provide information on the Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) and the clearance certificates for the construction sites at Kuri and Dhoke Jando close to Nicholson’s Monument.
It was also determined that the consultant would split the cost of the geological and hydrological assessments on the site and would also give details on suggested drone surveys for use in feasibility studies.
Deputy Director General (DDG) Planning Zafar Iqbal, DDG Sanitation Rafia Haider, Director Sanitation Malik Atta, Director Regional Planning Faraz Malik, and others recently examined the place.
The board will be informed on 7 potential sites, with the aforementioned 2 receiving special attention.
It should be noted that the Islamabad High Court will also hear a case the following month, and the CDA will be required to respond to the actions it has made to build a suitable dump site in the capital.
The Rawalpindi Waste Management Company owns the area at Losar, Chak Beli Khan where the CDA now dumps solid waste. The municipal group established a temporary rubbish dump site in the I-12 residential area before shifting it to H-16.
Additionally, the court directed the CDA to ensure that no rubbish be disposed of on temporary sites in residential areas of Islamabad beginning on April 10, 2022.
The CDA temporarily moved to the Chak Beli area, where the civic group is now recommending that its landfill be established.
