The Satpara Dam development project on the Satpara Lake was inaugurated in 2002 and expected to be completed soon. It is 7 km away from Skardu city and its altitude is 8,700 feet (2,700 m) moreover it will also pond the water about 90,000 acre feet (110,000,000 m3). The main source of water is melting ice of the Deosai plains during the summer season.

 

It is a multipurpose project, which will produce 13 Megawatts hydro generation, irrigate 15,000 acres (61 km2) of land and also provide 13 cusecis drinking water daily to Skardu city.
Satpara Lake
Satpara Lake is Skardu Valley's main lake. In 2002, the Government of Pakistan decided to build a dam on the Satpara Lake allocating $10 million to the Satpara Dam project, two years later in 2004. Progress on the project has, however, been slow. Satpara Lake is 6 miles (9.7 km) from Skardu. Satpara Lake is one of the largest fresh water lakes in the countryside offering trout fishing, and row boating. This lake is also the source of Skardu's drinking water.
