The schematic diagram below shows the major rivers, canals, dams and other works of the Indus Basin irrigation system. Tarbela, Mangla and Chashma are the three primaryreservoirs on this system. Tarbela is the first regulation device on the Indus and Pakistan¶slargest storage device with 10.93 billion cubic meters of storage capacity.
