Farmers in Polonnaruwa say that the Parakrama samudrya is under serious risk due to widespread Salvinia moss.

It has been reported that 15-20% of the parakrama samudrya is covered with moss.

The farmers in the area added that although officials have been informed of the situation, no solution has been provided yet.

The Polonnaruwa area director of irrigation, M.P Karunarathne, said that measures are underway to eliminate the moss with the aid of farmers and other civil agencies.
