ORDER OR MORE EXCLUDING CIGARETTES KARACHI (LTD Three-fourths of the 3.5 million people living In Karachi went unwashed most of this past summer. Karachi lies on the coastal fringe of the Sind Desert and suffers from recurrent breakdowns in Its Inadequate water supply system. Thousands of Pakistanis line up daily at community taps and wait for hours for their turn to fill a pall from a trickle of water. Some residents take possession of the community tap at their doorstep and charge any where from 50 cents to $1 for three gallons of water. "Arri-sahib, where is the water?" a messenger asked me one day. "I must get up every morning to fill a small bucket. I have eight people In my family. "The water must go for cooking, washing and drinking. We must eat and we must . drink. Who can afford to wash these days?" . But most of Pakistan's water problems relate to agriculture in which 80 per cent of the nation's 126 million people are 'engaged. "There is seldom enough waler," a planning commission official said. "The thin spreading of water on flat alluvial hinds with poor natural .drainage has added to the problems of salinity and waterlogging." The problem is acute In West Pakistan where ralnfll averages less than 10 Inches a year. In the Punjab, one-third of the 15 million acres of land good for farming Is partially damaged by salinity. Another three million acres In the same region are severely ,da maged by salt water. Only 25 million acres of West Pakistan's 66 million acres of arable land are lrri- R--f,flkrs-ta'iris Irving to Increase its available supply of water from the present 60 million acre feet per year to 125 million acre feet. '; Construction of two dams and other waterworks In the Indus River Basin will provide one of the major new sources o water. The Indus Basin project will cost $1.1? billion. Most of the financing is coming from the World Bank and a consortium of nations including the United States. The Mangla Dam, completed last year, will store 5.4 million acre feet of Indus water. The Tarbela Dam, construction of which starts this year, will capture 11.1 million acre feet of water each summer for Irrigation In winter. But Pakistan is running Into financial problems on the Indus Basin development. Although foreign aid is paying the big share, Pakistan must provide local currency rupee funds equivalent to $335.5 million to pay some of the local costs in building the dams. Engaged In something of an arms race with India, Pakistan increased its defense spending 10 per cent this year to $514.5 million with no signs of a stop. So the government is hardpressnd to find revenue to meet its financial commitment In the Tarbela Dan, due to be completed by 1975. ' Tarbela will not provide all of West Pakistan's water , needs. Desalinlzation through nuclear energy was considered and discarded because of costs. ' "Fortunately Pakistan has a large potentlal for expanding the supply of water," an official In the Water and Power Development Authority said. He said 25 million acre feet of water which now flows wastefully to sea can be captured by dams and Improved canal systems. Another 40 million acre feet of water can lie pumped each year from underground deposits. - East Pakistan, which lies on the other side of India from West Pakistan, faces an entirely different problem: Too much water. East Pakistan occupies a delta laced with some of the world's largest rivers. East Pakistan receives an annual rainfall of 90 Inches nine -times more rain than falls on West Pakistan. "The East Wing's main 'problems are flood protection, drainage and Irrigation In that "order," a water development : official said. "The need Is to Increase the number of crops per year by "protecting Its arable acreage from floods and Introducing " better Irrigation systems." - Thus In Pakistan It is too 'little water In the West, too " much In the East and, with 1 1ndia lying between no way to connect the two. : I ' f 3'4 0Z.
