Dhanbad, the second largest city in Pakistan''s Sindh province is located on the bank of the river Indus in the Khyber Agency of Punjab. The Indus River flows through the city and enters the Arabian Sea, providing a clear connection between this city and the rest of Pakistan. Dhanbad''s port was once the port of origin of the Indus River but the port of Dhanbad was subsequently destroyed by the British during the partition of the country.

The water supply for many areas of Pakistan is from dams, which are fed by wells and reservoirs that provide clean tap water. However, the government has decided to tap into the reserves of this water for the purpose of drinking and cooking. In order to do so, it is necessary to make use of a purifying system. While this is the case in rural areas, in urban areas, where the population density is more, it is necessary to ensure that there is sufficient water supply for the whole city to be able to live without any kind of threat.<
