The officials have decided to clean the waters of the Hambanthota- Bandagirya River to resolve the issue which even created an undue riot between the police and the area residents.

The water board has begun the process of cleaning the river after a discussion held yesterday with the residents of the area. Water supply was disrupted to five Gramasevaka divisions due to pollution in the Bandagiriya River. The residents took to the streets obstructing the Pallemalala junction in protest demanding clean water for consumption.

The police used batton charge to disperse the protesters which resulted in a riot between them and as a result six persons were hospitalized including three policemen as well.  Twelve residents were arrested in connection with the tensed situation and produced to the Hambanthota magistrate on the same day and bailed on a fine of Rs.Two lakhs. The area residents and the officials of the water board discussed the issues and it was decided to launch a project to supply water to the residents of Bandagiriya.
