The opening of the Moragahakanda Reservoir built under Sri Lanka's largest multi-functional Irrigation Project is scheduled to take place today under the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena.

Moragahakanda Reservoir was built under the Moragahakanda-Kalu Ganga Irrigation Development Project. It spans over 29.5 square kilometers.

The combined project at a cost of 1.2 billion dollars involves the construction of the Moragahakanda Dam and Reservoir, along with the separate Kalu Ganga Dam and Reservoir, for irrigation and power generation purposes.

The constructions of the dams of the Reservoir have entered the final phase.

The Moragahakanda Reservoir, constructed across Amban River - a tributary of the Mahaweli River, will be the last reservoir of the Mahaweli Development Project.

The project, currently undergoing construction, was inaugurated in January 2007, when President Sirisena held the office of the minister of Irrigation and Mahaweli Development.
