After years of waiting, the Kamal Khan Dam, located in the Chaharburjak district of Nimroz province, was handed to the national water affairs regulation authority for water filling.

NWARA posted on the Facebook page yesterday, that Kamal Khan Dam, the construction process of one of the largest national projects in the country, will soon be completed.

Reports indicate the damn will soon be officially inaugurated.

NWARA said, besides the public, President Ghani expressed happiness over the completion of Kamal Khan Dam “I am very happy today as I saw the waves of Kamal Khan and a 700-year-old dream of Afghanistan was accomplished today,”.

Officials and residents celebrated the reservoir of the damn as water started filling it.

This dam will be used for hydro-electric and irrigation purposes.

An estimated 80 hectares of land will be irrigated through the water sources of the dam and 9 megawatts of electricity will be produced.

Last year in October, six security guards were killed and two others were wounded when unknown gunmen attack security personnel responsible for Kham Khan Dam.
