About Us

PHED came into being to provide clean drinking water, hygiene facilities and a healthy environment to the public. It was originally established as a secondary branch in 1974 which was merged with Communication and Works Department in 2001. However, after the realization of its enormous role in the public sphere it was given the status of an independent department in 2009. Presently, we have divided the province into northern and southern units for administrative purposes. The assigned teams work under two chief engineers. Presently, it consists of 227 personnel, who work devotedly under the supervision of Administrative Secretary and Chief Engineers. PHED
