Rasul Barrage is used to control water flow in the River Jhelum for irrigation and flood control purposes.
Rasul Barrage was constructed in 1968 and has a discharge capacity of 24070 cubic meter per second. Water is diverted from this point to Chenab River at Qadirabad through Rasul-Qadirabad link canal, then ultimately transferred to Sulemanki Barrage on the Sutlej River. Rasul-Qadirabad link canal has the second largest water discharge capacity after Chashma-Jhelum link canal. It has 538-m³/s discharge capacity while Chashma-Jhelum link canal has 615-m³/s capacity.
