Dams in India
Pakal Dul Dam
The Pakal Dul Dam is a proposed concreteface rockfill dam on the Marusadar River, a tributary of the Chenab River, in Kishtwar district of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. The primary purpose of the dam is hydroelectric power generation. It will divert water to the south through a 10 km (6.2 mi) long headrace tunnel and into power station on the reservoir of the Dul Hasti Dam, on the Chenab. In February 2014, the project was awarded to a consortium of domestic and foreign countries. It includes Patel Engineering, Bharat Heavy Electricals and Turkeys Limak Holding. Pakistan, who relies on the Chenab downstream, views the dam as a violation of the Indus Water Treaty.
