Project Description

Nullah Ujh is one of the most prominent tributary of River Ravi in Tshil Shakargarh of District Narowal. Jalala flood embankment is forming defence to flood for 103 villages in vicinity of Jalal Sharif in Tehsil Shakargarh. There was a need to find a comprehensive solution to avoid breach of Jalala flood bund in future and to avoid haphazard flood fighting carried out each year. This reach was under sever threat and due to deferred maintenance the bund along with allied river training works were also in bad shape. This mitigation measure will improve and make this vital flood defence as resilient for the safety of the area against fluvial floods in Nullah Ujh.  Further, the project benefits are not limited to:

  • Achieving flood mitigation in the adjoin areas of Jalala Sharif Tehsil Shakargarh, District Narowal
  • Avoiding haphazard works during floods
  • Saving thousands of acres of agriculture land and abadies from flood damages, in case of breach
  • Less flood risks to masses/ vulnerable groups
  • Improvement of irrigation flood infrastructure
  • Habitat improvements to improve biodiversity
  • River restoration and naturalization
  • Improvements to public access and enjoyment of the River Ravi corridor and interpretation of this environment for the public benefit
