Number of residents belong to Singor, Shahmirandeh kicked desilting (cleaning of irrigation channel) on volunteer basis. Some 18000 people from the suburbs of Chitral like Singor, Shah Miranda Balch etc. use the same stream for irrigation purposes.
This irrigation canal was brought by the people for their lands from the river Chitral. Then in 1977 one megawatt hydroelectric power plant was built on the same river and the land of the local people remained dry for a long time. The water flows into this river from which the people here not only irrigate their lands but also the people living along this stream use water motors to carry this water to their homes.
