The floodwaters of the Hingol River are going to be contained once the proposed Hingol Dam is built. The proposed proposal is to construct a dam on the Hingol River close to the Shri Hinglaj Mata temple, which is a significant Hindu pilgrimage site in Pakistan. The dam would have flooded the roads leading to the temple, endangering the community and its associated celebrations. After protests from Hindus, the Balochistan Assembly decided to drop the plan for the dam. By stopping the flow of the Hingol River, the flood water can be used to grow crops, make electricity, and provide water for drinking and other uses.
