water dams[1]Department of Rural Rehabilitation and Development officials have established two small water dams in Khenjan district of Baghlan province.

Funded by the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development at a total cost of 6 million AFN, the project provides power supply to 700 families in the area.

“The dams are built in Khushkak and Murgha areas of Khenjan district and have the capacity to produce 24-27Kw of electricity,” said Eng. Abdul Rab Hakimi.

Hakimi added that the power stations built in the aforementioned areas had low capacity and could not generate sufficient power supply for the households to use their heaters or water boilers.
