Water is an essential resource for all life on the planet. As time advances, water is becoming scarcer and having access to clean, safe, drinking water is limited among countries. We are expert in Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) which is a key driver of economic and social development while it also has a basic function in maintaining the integrity of the natural environment. ECPAK has made significant contributions to the development and management of water resources in Pakistan. ECPAK’s expertise resides in the development of water resources, both in conjunction with land resources development and as part of urban development.
Assignments typically start with exploration and definition of the water resources potential in river and groundwater basins, considering the complex factors and characteristics interacting in the system. Plans are then made by integrating resources with current and future demand estimates, with due allowance for the physical, social, human and environmental aspects involved.
Our projects span comprehensive development and planning, incorporating components such as irrigation, drainage and reclamation, flood protection, hydropower, water supply and associated infrastructure. Frequently, such plans involve the reconciliation of a variety of different and possibly conflicting requirements to arrive at the optimum water resource option.
We have considerable experience of river and groundwater development planning using digital models, having completed several complex multi-layer, flexible grid models. Our experts have been closely involved in the Khairpur Tube-well Drainage Project and the Lower Indus Project where new techniques were developed for the drainage of saline land using skimming wells. MMP is presently also engaged in developing the Masterplan for Water and Sanitation Agency, Lahore. Our expertise including:
- Water resources planning
- Drainage, salinity control and land reclamation
- Irrigation systems
- High Efficiency Irrigation
- Agriculture extension and development
- Groundwater resources development
- Flood management and forecasting/warning systems
- Institutional and social development
